After Years Of Searching The Jungle They Finally Find The ‘Holy Grail’ Of WWII Relics

They thought he was crazy. But restaurant tycoon David Tallichet knew there was something he was missing in the jungle. As an innovator in the restaurant scene, a man who has injected culture and different tastes in the food he serves, Tallichet has built a legacy that will long outlive him. However, the discovery he made in the jungle had nothing to do with his success as a career restaurateur.

Yet his discovery has both historic significance and is simply interesting. But when he ventured out into the middle of nowhere in the jungle, he ended up raising ghosts from the grave.

Tallichet made his fortune in the food industry when he founded a Polynesian-themed restaurant chain in California. But his success began when he learned discipline as part of the military. He was deployed during World War Ii and was a co-pilot on a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. In the sky, as in the kitchen, Tallichet was a force to be reckoned with.

Even as he carved out his fortune in the restaurant business, he still maintained his passion for plains and aviation. He started to grow an aircraft collection when he made a lot of money. He even specialized in military plane replicas. His plains were hired for movies like “Pearl Harbor.”

Despite his success, Tallichet wanted more. He took a team to Papa New Guinea to trek through the jungle. He was eager to find more out of life. One of the most underdeveloped places in the world, Papa New Guinea has a fearsome jungle that is not kind to visitors. With the jungle thwarting his every move, Tallichet and his team had to force themselves through the landscape and into the swamp.

Despite having years of survival skills among the team, no one was prepared for the surprise in the middle of the jungle.

Tallichet was brought to tears when he saw the thing among the greenery. He was immediately brought back to 1942 when World War II was at its peak. U.S. Army Air Corps Captain Fred Eaton and Henry Maynard Harlow were hired for a secret and heroic mission. They were to fly from Australia up against the Japanese coast. When things took a bad turn at the Japanese Fortress at Rabaul in New Britain, they were left with few options.

The plane started to fall from the sky and landed in the middle of the Papa New Guinea jungle. The team of nine had little resources and a lot of strife to contend with.

The team simply abandoned the shot-up U.S. B-17E bomber. For six weeks, they trekked through the jungle. They battle malaria and heatstroke.

Meanwhile, the “swamp ghost” ship stayed put for decades. At least until Tallichet used his money to find it. Check out the video below to see more pictures of his incredible discovery.

When Tallichet and his team found it, they quickly called in an airlift and resurrected the “swamp ghost.” They broke a wing, but eventually got it out of the jungle. Now the bomber is officially retired.

Record 6,200 Foreign Criminals Are Living in Britain Instead of Being Deported

A record 6,200 foreign criminals are living in the community instead of being deported.

Killers, sex attackers, robbers and drug dealers are among the thousands released back onto the streets at the end of their jail sentences.

Although they are due for deportation, the offenders are not kept in prison. Many then simply slip off the radar.

Others challenge their deportation orders, often using human rights or asylum laws.

In total, there were 6,231 foreign national offenders living in Britain in December who were due for deportation. This was up 10 per cent on the figure in December the previous year.

Nearly a third – 2,032 – have been out of jail for more than five years. Another 1,502 have dodged being removed from the country for between two and five years.

The figures published by the Home Office raise concerns the beleaguered department is failing to get a grip on the problem. It is already facing flak after ministers admitted 63 members of the Windrush generation could have been wrongfully removed or deported since 2002.

Sex attacker Aliou Bah was given £110,000 compensation for being locked up for 21 months after his own country refused to take him back.

Making the award, Judge Nicholas Madge said he ‘wholeheartedly’ agreed that many would think his victims should get payouts instead.

Bah came to the UK in 2007 from Guinea to join his refugee father. Four years later, he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl and was jailed for 18 months.

He was also jailed for two years for another sexual assault three years later.

But last year, the High Court ruled Bah, 28, was held unlawfully as there was little prospect of deporting him.

Officials in Guinea had refused to process his case and another obstacle was that Bah had been granted permission to stay in the UK as a refugee.

Conservative MP Philip Hollobone said: ‘There is no excuse for these deplorable figures. If foreign national offenders are subject to deportation they should be deported straight away.

‘It is easier to deport people straight away as once you leave them in the community things get more difficult as years go on.’

Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman Sir Ed Davey added: ‘Yet again the Government have got their immigration priorities wrong.

‘At the same time as treating British citizens from the Windrush generation so unfairly, ministers have failed to get to grips with foreign criminals. We need a common sense approach that puts the public and the taxpayer first. Where someone is a threat, we can’t afford the risk they might abscond.’

Britain can deport EU criminals who serve time in jail while non-EU offenders must have served at least one year behind bars.

Once convicts have served a sentence, they can only continue to be held if there is a good chance of them being deported imminently.

But many slip off the radar while others fight deportation orders, often using controversial human rights or asylum laws to trigger a lengthy and costly legal battle.

In November, a report by David Bolt, chief inspector of borders and immigration, found that in April last year, 753 foreign criminals were missing after being freed from jail. He added that a third of planned removals failed: 7,772 out of 24,289 dating back to 2014-15.

A team set up to finding missing criminals had only 11 staff.

A Home Office spokesman said more than 41,000 foreign offenders have been removed since 2010.

He added: ‘Foreign nationals who commit crimes should be in no doubt of our determination to deport them. We’ve made huge progress in identifying these individuals. This has contributed to the rise in the number of recorded foreign criminals living in the community.’
