...most aircraft were British

Deaf... Good point... and correct about the Junkers G31's... which is why I said 'most aircraft were British'. As is known, Levien faced argument and opposition to bringing the "American" Electra 10A's into Guinea Airways, but won out in the end.

...and in respect to all the Electra 10A's and 10B's that did enter Australia....and of the single 10A that was based in LAE and then went out and back into New Guinea during WWII, all can be accounted for, none crashed in New Guinea. All those had P&W R-985's or Wright 975 radials.
