New Website:
There is no longer a relic like 'Swamp Ghost' in situ, on land, with equal history or intact condition.

To track this ongoing news story, I have created a new website:

Experience Swamp Ghost: Photos, video trailers and even see its (former) resting place on Google Earth. This section includes other features like audio podcasts and detail's on the bomber's machine guns and instruments.

Details on the crew and this bomber's mission and history

Latest news on the salvage and controversy around it. Archive of all news stories about the bomber to date.

I find the story of the SwampGhost a sickening example of how the abuse of power and money resulted in the destruction of a unique piece of history. What was a memorial to all those who died in PNG is now a symbol of corruption and greed.
