The Swamp Ghost

PNG Museum Authorizes Removal, Then Revolks and Curator Charged
[ 1993 ] Six years after the Travis Museum proposal was rejected, the PNG Museum’s new curator authorized the removal of the “Swamp Ghost”. The aircraft was never removed, and the curator was given a public service charge and questioned.

Post Courier reported in 1993:
“There seems to have been a question over the legitimacy of the war museum, as whether such a body had the lawful authority to enter into an agreement to recover the stricken aircraft and take it to America.”
