Hi Tim

I would expect any bottle to have a scale in size of attached image

Can anyone see old-fashioned radio components through this hole? Tubes, rectifiers, or whatever they were called?

Hi Tim

I have outlined what could be a possible bottle but your arrows are way short of the object, Which led me to question what you see.

Also attached is an image i believe headphone's connection is clearly visible

I can make out what is possibly a glass radio tube from 3:00-5:00, but can't quite tell what the object is at 12:00-1:00. What do you think this "hole" is, Tim? Are we looking through a hole in the fuselage, or a hole in a radio box itself?

You are correct about that bottle you outlined. My arrows referred to the bottle just to the left.

The latter. Do you see anything 6:00 to 8:30?

Inasmuch as it appears that several of these radio components are vertical and therefore parallel to one another, I believe we are looking at the insides of the HF radio transmitter with its corner conveniently removed. The shiny domed object on the right side of the hole looks distictly like the top of a vacuum tube to me too, Hatch. This transmitter, according to the Harney diagrams, sat beneath the Navigator's table in the rear compartment, just forward of the auxiliary battery, which is also in close proximity in the 2010 HD video.

Guys----you are looking for small objects---can you please find something LARGER??? I dont think that you can justify another expedition because of a coke bottle, or what you think are radio tubes. You cant positively tie those pieces to NR16020, which, IHMO, is what you should be looking for. But also IMHO, you wont find that evidence at the 800 foot level. 3000+ maybe (probably). But Tighar didnt have the assets to go that deep, and respectfully, I question that. WE talked about that possibility in DC. I'll go back and research the expedition assets again. I must have missed something.

For those interested in how control cables are attached, I think I have found an example in this photo of the instrument panel (2010 HD video at time 13:41:53, frame 27). Although obviously out of place, I believe this may be part of the steering mechanism that came from the base of the pilot's control wheel column. Other instrument panel components are identified for reference.

WITHDRAWN: This instrument appears to me to be the Western Electric 9A Remote indicator from the far right side of the knee panel. Its top is to the left, and the needle would indicate it is pointing to the "DAY" position, which means the 6210 frequency.

Closer examination using High Definition equipment reveals this item to be but a collage of unrelated parts, including probably coral.
