Tinian is where we (Star Marianas Air) call home and is the closest island to the capital of Saipan, situated about 5 miles southwest and easily accessible by air (10 min.). Tinian features unique historical sites; from prehistoric stone monoliths called Taga Stones to the very runways and loading docks that put atom bombs aboard the Enola Gay to stop WWII.
