Wartime History
Abandoned at the Wewak Airfield (Wiruri).

Wreckage Today
Only a few pieces of wreckage remained on the north side of the road at the former airfield, now a road. Nothing much is left, other than the engines, a gear strut, and a few bits of aluminium. The rest have long since been scrapped or removed. It is one of the only traces of the Wirui (Wewak) airstrip's wartime history that is easily found.
