Wreck Mystery Solved!!

It is an H8K as some surmised.
Thanks to Richard Sikel who found the top view photo I have been searching for. The photo is proof positive that we have a Kawanishi H8K (probably a 2 series) 'Emily' seaplane at the "B-29" crash site in the Saipan Lagoon.

More details to follow.

Thanks Richard!!!

The mystery I want solved is whether the guy in the blue car up there turns around when he goes back to the dock or does he just kick it in reverse?

Seriously though, nice work with the plane identification, it's been interesting following your progress.
