The following information was supplied to me by Douglas Scott of 79 Squadron RAAF:-

"With the war ended, and demobilisation for most looming, it was hardly surprising that a forest of 'unserviceable' assorted single seaters accumulated around the strip at Mokmer airfield on Biak. My final task before moving south was to destroy the lot. This was done with surprising difficulty with a mixture of avgas and oil. As I recall among the aircraft destroyed there in about January 1946 were Mustangs, Spit 8's, Kittyhawks. About a score in total."
