Hi Skyraider3D:

I looked at it on Google Earth, and looks like Medan has close to 1mil people living there. I doubt this plane still exists as a wreck.

Hi Doug:

Try some of the places listed on this site. Anything outside of what's available here would require some study.

Yes there is a gentleman on the warbirdz website who's doing one.

http://www.warbirdz.com or http://www.warbirdz.net. Look under restorations, and give him a buzz.

I'm Planning a Trip

Hello Gents:

I am planning a trip to the South pacific area, and wondering if anyone knows a specific area where airfields were, or where aircraft are suspected to be found.

I would like to go to that area and report back, thanks!

About Mr. Chris

Hey Guys:

I've been around. I am currently restoring a Harvard Mk IV in Arizona. It is going well. I am also a Civil Engineer. I hope someday to recover an airplane from the Pacific area in the future.

Hi Linda:

There are many books available which talk about what types of planes the US used over Japan.

Anyway, P-51's, B-25's, B-24's, B-29's, PB4Y's, F6F's, TBM's, Corsairs, SB2C's, P-38's, and P-47's. Probably others too.

hi_stik: I'm rebuilding a plane, and it's basically a learning curve. You can do it on your own hands on. Might I suggest you start with a light plane like a Piper Cub, and rebuild it to airworthy. Go to the local airport and find yourself a good IA mechanic, and get him to help you. Are you in Ariz...
