Aircraft Wrecks of the Solomon Islands

Like the wrecks of Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands are littered with the twisted carcasses of Japanese and American aircraft destroyed during the War in the Pacific.

These remains reflect just a handful of those accessible to tourists, abandoned near villages and strewn throughout the rain forests.

Above, the shell of one old fighter plane has been secured by a metal framework, the grass cut neatly around it.
