#104 - Where in the world is Tinian?

Tinian is part of a 15 island group that makes up the Northern Mariana Islands in the Pacific Ocean. The name might be familiar; just east of the islands you can find the Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the worlds oceans.

Tinian also played a huge role during World War II. The US took over the island, and used it as a base to attack the Japanese mainland. In fact, the planes that dropped the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? They were flown from Tinian.

Interesting eh?
