Yap Harbor Wreckage—Position Light Mount & Rear Fusulage


Picture of a position or recognition light attach mount found at the Yap harbor wredck site.
Please see the pictures below of an unidentified mount and large piece of wreckage that was located in the wreckage field we found in the Yap harbor. Originally we thought this was the ADF mount on the top of a piece of the rear fuselage that was compressed to look like a leading edge. However, it now appears to be a position or recognition light attachment mount and not an ADF mount. The pictures below show the mount out of the water, in the water, and pictures taken inside the piece of wreckage looking out towards the mount hole. I'm seeking help to identify the mount and this piece of wreckage. You can clearly see rib supports on the inside the wreckage. The wreckage is large enough for a diver to fit inside. The wreckage is about 10-12 feet in length. Please let me know if anyone can help identify the mount and the position of the mount so we can identify this particular piece of wreckage.

Please feel free to send me an email at: pat@missingaircrew.com
