Photographer's Note

During World War II, American bombers based in Qld flew north to combat the Imperial Japanese Army in Papua New Guinea. This one didn't make it. I may post another shot tomorrow showing the tail section. Please see the 2 workshops below, for an overview of the park entry, & a close up of the memorial plaque.

Workshop I

Workshop II

This area is very remote, & near the tip of Cape York. The nearest town of any size is Weipa, over 300 km south. More info & pics here:
