Back to the Bay

Back to the Bay

Wrecks of Second World War planes remain at Talasea. At an old emergency air strip which was used by the US Air Force during the Battle of the Coral Sea, and in reasonably good condition, there is a USAF B-25 Bomber and a Lockheed Ventura, which was flown by the New Zealand Air Force. Apparently the b-25 was shot-up over Rabaul but managed to make it back to Talasea and landed with the crew on board intact.
