American removal of WW2 wrecks

THE pilot of a helicopter was killed when his aircraft crashed into the sea near Lae city, just minutes after taking off last Friday morning.Killed in the crash was John Twitt, formerly of Melbourne, Australia.His passengers — three US army officers and an officer with the National Museum— survived, most of them without a scratch.Only one of the US army officers had to be hospitalised after suffering injuries in the crash.The Pacific Helicopters-owned Lhama helicopter had been contracted by Hawaii-based US Army Central Identification Laboratory (CILHI) and was on Friday morning enroute to a downed World War II crash site in Kabwum, which the team was surveying before moving personnel and equipment to the site.
