Well, the accompanying photos prove conclusively that the wreckage in the Saipan lagoon commonly called the B-29 Dive Site is not a B-29. The control yoke is quite different from the one at the wreck site and the tail cone/rear gunner position is totally different. Finally, the 'spinner' at the prop hub is not the same at all. Now I'm off to search for photos of Japanese seaplanes to see if I can find a match.
So now it's official. Interesting though the dive site is, you will not be diving on a B-29. Stay tuned while I search for what kind of plane really lies there.
Should we reprint all the dive maps?
