American removal of WW2 wrecks

I have heard that there are a lot of Americans in PNG at the moment trying to and successfully removing WW2 wrecks? Is this true? Can anyone give me any information on this? Iv heard they are both going through proper channels and some are just being taken. Any help would be fantastic.

I was talking to a person who had come back from one of many visits from PNG and he said” seems you cant turn around with out seeing a Yank dragging a plane…."
The information is for a short article about when they are finished striping PNG they will start on Australia.
