Bristol-built, so built to last, even half-submerged!

How many litres of water has it taken throughout all these years with that open mouth...Incredible photo.

At first sight I thought this was a highly original "Boat House"!. Still in amazing condition after all this time. Pity no one has put together a rescue plan for this rare bird, or have they?. Big B.

Wow great picture!!! I agree with our American friend...what a cool place to take your girlfriend too in a boat!!!!! Woot woot!!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 22, 2010:
Most unusual sight!

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 22, 2010:
Looks like a great place to hide in a boat with your girlfriend! (wink, wink)

A visitor from Canada posted Fri October 22, 2010:
You could use it as a boat house.

A visitor from Germany posted Fri October 22, 2010:
Cool picture. After more than 50 years, still looking repairable. It looks as if it wants to eat all fish in the lake.

A visitor from Poland posted Fri October 22, 2010:
You can drive a boat straight into fuselage ^_^

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri October 22, 2010:
Just googled that lake and I must say its in the middle of nowhere!Great effort for capturing it Jason!

Magnificent, poignant, this Classic derelict for over 50 years

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 21, 2010:
Thanks for the outstanding aerial view. Many WWII abandoned airframes in New Guinea that looked beyond hope have also been rescued and restored. Although not airworthy, this rare one is worth saving to be displayed in a museum.

Nice retirement.
