Japanese Zero Crash Site on Yap Island
We spent a lot of time working with the Yapese to locate new crash sites. Although we are trying to locate American sites, you never know if you're going to find an American or Japanese plane. We had a good lead about a new crash site. We had high hopes that it was a F6F-5 Hellcat that we were trying to locate but when we found the site it turned out to be a Japanese Zero. The Zero hit the group hard when it crashed and was spread out over a large area. It was likely shot down while attacking American B-24's over the island.
