The PNGDF never owned or operated DHC4 Caribou. There is no PNG Air Force, only the combined PNGDF.

I think the only Caribou wreck the RAAF left in PNG was A4-233 which crashed in the Kudjeru Gap in August 1972, killing 21 school cadets, a liaison officer and the crew of 3.

The rest of the Caribous pranged by the RAAF were recovered.
Wasn’t the Caribou wreck left at Tapini for a long time?
