This wrecked Lockheed PV-1 Ventura, delivered to the US Navy as Bu. 34645 and later transferred to the Royal New Zealand Air Force as NZ4522, was hit in the starboard engine by a shell on September 9, 1944. The bomber, which had been part of a raid on Rabaul, limped on one engine to Talasea airstrip in New Britain.
