Michael McFadyen's Scuba Diving - Boeing B-17,
When you visit Honiara in the Solomon Islands, you tend to do double dives. The main day trip is to the wrecks of the Bonegi Creek (Bonegi 1 and 2). Yet another great double dive in the Solomon Islands is close by the capital of Honiara. The first dive is the wreck of the Kyusyu Maru, better known by the name of the nearby creek, Ruiniu. The second is the Boeing B-17E plane.
After diving the Kyusyu Maru, a great way to spend your surface interval is to go to Fred Kona's Vilu War Museum which is only seven kilometres further west. As well as artillery, shells, helmets, rifles and other war relics, the outdoor museum has the remains of many famous Allied aircraft on display. The aircraft include a Grumman F4F Wildcat, a Lockheed P-38F Lightning and one of the greatest combat aircraft ever, the Chance Vought V-166B F4U Corsair. The SI$4 entry fee is well worth spending for the chance to see these remains of the war. Note that due to the ethnic problems existing since early 1999 and the museum is closed and all the wrecks overgrown. See comment at the end of this article.
After the museum, it is a short drive (1.5 km) to the second dive site at Domo (or Ndomo).
I do not know if Fred Kona's War Museum still exists.
