I have seen one of this dredge of pure hard steel rusting in peace along the banks of the Bulolo River and can imagine how it must have been freight in parts to its current location.

The history of air transport in New Guinea is fascinating. Jim Sinclair has of course written much about this.

There is an little book by Pat Studdy-Clift called "The Incredible Klemm" that records the history of a Klemm plane built in 1934, flying in New Guinea until World War II, flown out to Australia to escape the Japanese, and still flying and going to air-shows in 2009!
