Kiriwina Rain by Alan Moore
This excellent painting shows a Douglas Boston on the Kiriwina airfield around 1943. The Douglas A-20 Havoc (also designated as DB-7) bomber and attack variants were usually known in Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) service as the “Boston”. After landing on Kiriwina and Woodlark Island as part of Operation Chronicle on June 30, 1943, U.S. Army Engineers supervised construction of Kiriwina Airfield, including a 2,000 metre (6,000 ft) coral-surfaced runway. No. 73 Wing RAAF was based at this field.
