WW2 planes found

Paradise - - Contents -

Three planes that were shot down in Pa­pua New Guinea dur­ing World War 2 have been found near Madang by an Amer­i­can re­cov­ery team that vis­ited re­cently.

One of the planes is Amer­i­can and the other two are Ja­panese.

But the team also has solid leads for more air­craft in Astro­labe Bay, off the Madang Golf Course, and along the Rai Coast, and will re­turn in Septem­ber to search fur­ther.

The ‘Project Re­cover’ team com­prised eight sci­en­tists from the Scripps In­sti­tu­tion of Oceanog­ra­phy, Univer­sity of Delaware, and the Ben­tProp Project. They were ac­com­pa­nied by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the PNG Na­tional Mu­seum and the US Em­bassy.
