A double page spread on this wreck appeared in Classic Wings Vol.6,No.2, 1999, including shots of the very complete and well preserved cockpit. I handled the photographs myself. This was a real wreck alright.

: Picture taken circa 1990 in Gusap, Papua New Guinea. Thes
: e remains were later overtaken again by a landslide in the
: area. The wreckage was reported as "destroyed", but how
: much destruction could a landslide cause to something alre
: ady considered "wreckage"?
: I suppose what's left of the plane is still there.
