Certainly PNG. Not Lae or Wau. The ID I have is of a place not too far from Wau. Picture taken in the late 1930s, I suspect.

Another quick stab mate. The article also mentions a Bulolo Aerodrome? Is your Junkers G-31 the "Bulolo.1 Paul?"

Noyade has it and is in control.

The caption says that the Bulolo airport was used as a golf course when planes were not expected. . G. Earth has what looks like a runway SE of the center of town. Maybe that is the old aerodrome, not when GE has the airport symbol.

The plane registration is VH-UOV.

We're not ignoring it, we're just temporarily flummoxed, tried all the obvious stuff and still working on it. LFH
