I intend to maintain this article on Citizendium. I wrote 100% of it for Wikipedia during 2006. It is really difficult to find much information about Oro Bay; I exhausted the resources of my local public library and had email correspondence with a university in Papua New Guinea, and this is all I could find.

A perhaps better image, and one in the public domain from 1943 from U.S. Division of Ocean Science (OCE), is at http://images.nationmaster.com/images/motw/historical/engineers_v1_1947/new_guinea_airfields_1943.jpg Stephen Ewen 17:55, 1 May 2007 (CDT)
There are many excellent free maps of PPG at http://maps.nationmaster.com/country/pp/1 Stephen Ewen 17:59, 1 May 2007 (CDT)
You could also use this map with probably just an email requesting use to AUSPIC . Or this map with just a simple email to this fellow. Stephen Ewen 18:35, 1 May 2007 (CDT)
Still more: Here are several more in the public domian: http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/papua_new_guinea.html - if you need help getting them from pdf to image files, just let me know. Stephen Ewen 18:40, 1 May 2007 (CDT)
I replaced the map image with one from the U. of Texas. I hope it is satisfactory, but since there doesn't seem to be an easily-found central place where image acceptability is discussed, I'm not sure. Louis F. Sander 22:00, 1 May 2007 (CDT)
