Sarcasm doesn't help. If someone has a different opinion then they are to be held in contempt?
There is the wreckage of a cashed BETTY at the Chino Air Museum that is held in a state of conservation. It has been placed in a mock swamp with fake palm trees etc..
It should have stayed in the jungle, but....at least they didn't rebuild it and make it look like a brand new plane.
I can see where greed played a part in the delay of the wreck's salvage. Too bad there wasn't more greed, maybe the deal would have fallen through and the wreck would have stayed where it was to help the locals with tourism and their livelyhood for years to come.
most of the tourists in png are wreck hunters or divers.
its not a real friendly place to go for a holiday... where you get knifed for $5 australian or eaten by other humans should you go off the track.
without wrecks, oil and the australian government holding up the png economy they would be finished.
why dont you join greenpeace.
