Douglas in Papua New Guinea
Got some photos of an Oscar that landed in grasslands
on the North coast on New Guinea. According to locals, the pilot survived, burnt the plane
and walked away. I've attached the villagers story [in Pidgin] for
I've got cameras out still at Safia and at Kokoda
where a village councillor says that he has two planes,one, a one
engined ,shattered wreck, and the second a fairly complete twin with
human remains. the councillor says they haven't been visited for a
very long time by his people, so they are having to relocate them.
I've located a B-25 inland from Wewak that contains
human remains. I'm trying to get an ID from the engine Nos. Watch
this space as the story unfolds over the next few months.
