    The only thing you can get from PNG is malaria.

    and gold, copper, silver, timber, oil and that old fave..... natural gas.
    During deep sleep IT came to me and the future of processing is clear.
    Future processors will primarily be digital tuning radios acting as grid computing nodes.
    Voila. See ya in hell.

    Details of the mission during which 41-38339 was lost are misleading.

    Wedau is located on the North east coast of Papua NG,
    some 25 miles (by air) from Gilli gilli wharf - Milne bay.
    The coastal journey is much longer but within the p-39's range.

    This mission could not be flown direct from Garbutt, Townsville.

    Airacobra cockpit.

    SOURCES Wartime reports:
    Combat Reports (RAAF Form A.108A) for Lt. P.G. Brown, 36 FS (27 May 42) ; Lt. F. Royal, 39 FS (4 Jul 42); Lt. J.C. Price, 39 FS (4 Jul 42); and, Capt. E. L. Egenes, 40 FS (6 Jul 42) (cited by pilot's last name)

    In later actions combat reports sometimes offer helpful insights into the relative performance of the two aircraft. Lt. Paul G. Brown chased a Zero at 12,000 feet. "He nearly stayed away from me at 350 mph" (Brown). In a low level action: "I indicated 320 mph straight and level at 1,000 feet. Zero kept me in range" (Royal). In another action on the same day Zeros encountered P-39s and P-400s at 21,000 feet. "Zeros stayed with the Airacobras. I dived 12,000 feet indicating 450 miles per hour and Zero stayed with me and followed me to ground level firing. Lt. Martin pulled him off me" (Price). "4 Zeros were over Kokoda and attacked us on the way home. We were barely able to out speed them at 10,000 feet. We were indicating about 350 mph in a very slight dive. Their probable speed 340 mph" (Egenes).

    You should go and spend a couple of years there, become a beachcomber and do some diving, before you get to old.
    My brother in law lives on his yacht in the whitsundays and sails the south pacific.
    He was a patrol officer in the new guinea highlands in the 1960s.
