Yap Harbor Wreckage Identified-Matching the F6F-5 Hellcat AN104 antenna and mount with wreckage pictures

Update: Taigh Ramey from Twin Beech provided the following information: Here are pictures that show the AN104 antenna. You can barely see the bottom of the antenna, the coax, connector and its mounting bracket. The lightening hole is visible that matches the holes in the wreckage pictures below. The flange on the former and the side of the I beam that the antenna is mounted on also match the wreckage pictures. The built up I beam structure makes up the beefy roll over structure behind the pilot's head and armor plate.

Please feel free to send comments and questions to Pat Ranfranz: pat@missingaircrew.com
