    Hi,
    I'm hoping someone can give me some links, or ideas on how to track down aircraft wrecks through database searches or anything that they can think will help me. I am interested in tracking down World War Two aircraft. Any help would be great.
    Thanks!

    Best bet would be the Internet. I know its vast, but its a start. Sorry I couldnt be more of a help, maybe someone else can help a little bit better.

    I came across this site while looking for some info on a Dutch plane. It seemed ok but I really did not spend a lot of time on it. If you use it, please let me know if it was any good.

    Pacific Wrecks is a good site. I visit it regularly. Lately he's been doing small daily updates but there used to be alot of new wrecks being posted. This may be that Justin the site owner was arrested and held by Solomon Island authorities for stealing relics or some such nonsense. Perhaps the really good updates have stopped because he is persona non grata in the area now. I don't know. He has a section set aside for his charges and incarceration.
