Yongai in PNG to Fane in an old Fairchild

Recommended Posts

The Fairchild F24W was built between 1932 and 1946 and was known for its sturdy design and reliability. With its 165 hp engine it would cruise at 110 knots and offered a service ceiling of 12,700 ft

 

In Yongai we are still parked next to the chicken whisperer and wait for our two passengers
