Hey if they really want a rice factory for a B-17E in a swamp It's what capitalism is all about They have photos of it, and no many get out that way. Better to salvage it. Get the guy who's recovering SG for a third party to give the valuation for what its worth It's what capitalism is all about Fr...

Any jobs out there would be contradictory to your beliefs. Salvage people are not interested in the history, their motivation is money. They will rip skulls from a wreckage, just to salvage parts and pieces. Museums want displays and are willing to dislodge history to get their showpiece. About you...

That's great too. Alot of people make money all the time. It's what capitalism is all about, unless you're a stalinist.

Hi Laurent:

I was thinking about recovering some of them, so I can't show any photos as that would compromise the mission.

Tell us about it Daniel. In Sorong, my guide was a Melanesian named Benny who scared me at first. After a while, I realized he was a very kind hearted fellow. Got a lot of stares in Sorong, like they've never seen a white man before. Met a few Chinese in a small village in the jungle. Very nice, fri...

Hi Daniel:

Right, I thought I read something of an SNJ colliding with an F4F in Polynesia? Sort of near the frontlines.

Yeah, I was trying to be nice, and debate like a sport. You didn't heard any vitriol coming from me. Just reasonable questioning of some false remarks.

Harvard T-6 or SNJ

I am restoring a Harvard. It is going well, and the plane should be airworthy by next year. Anyway, wondering if anyone has heard of any Harvard T-6 or SNJ's having served w/ frontline units in the South Pacific Area? There were Harvard II's w/ the RAF in Burma. It would be interesting to know. Than...

Papua

Hey Gents:

Just took a trip to Papua, Indonesia. Went to Sorong, Manokwari, Waigeo, and other areas. Found a few Japanese planes. Went to Makassar, Manado, and other areas. It was an adventure. Be prepared for some serious culture shock.

"As everyone know getting paperwork completed for anything in the greater Pacific has gotten allot harder thanks to a few folks out their." It isn't that hard, you just gotta know the right people. Nobody out there really cares about some twisted metal. It's crazy to think you can restore a lot of t...

Malaysia Brewster Buffalo

Hello Fellows:

I've heard Gary Larkins had found a Buffalo in Malaysia. Said it was fairly complete, but no pictures. Said he would have video of it on the site. Whateverhappened to this plane? Was it recovered?

Thanks,

Mr.Chris
