Crash Site Pictures
Pictures of the Lt. George O. Beall, Jr. crash site. On our 2006 trip we located what we called an unidentified American crash site that include a R-2800 engine but no other visible wreckage. We searched the area around the engine site in 2006, 2008 and 2009 without success in locating the rest of the wreckage. Over the years my research of all the Yap losses identified the site as that of Lt. George O. Beall, Jr. Lt. Beall was shot down over Yap on October 31, 1944 while flying a mission to bomb the Gagil-Tamil airstrip on Yap Island in his FG-1A Corsair from Peleliu Island.
Please submit additional information.
