Coordinates[edit]

The coordinates in the article are not exact, they are almost a third of the way towards Rabaul. Better coordinates are: -4.309267,152.010226 The area seems to correspond well to the hand-drawn map in the article, but the bridge in the hand-drawn map is gone and there is no airstrip visible (own research using google maps). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.177.187.219 (talk) 17:50, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

We are normally wary of original research, but it certainly seems like the coordinates are simply wrong and yours are more accurate. This site, http://pwencycl.kgbudge.com/R/a/Rabaul.htm, gives the coordinates as 152.015E 4.313S which are close to yours. However, it's not ideal as a source -- while I don't particularly question the reliability of this article, it's a self-published tertiary source. I'd go with pacificwrecks.com, but I don't see coordinates on any of their pages related to Keravat. --Yaush (talk) 18:31, 17 September 2012 (UTC)
