In circle you will see what appears to be a steering wheel ?


You're 7 hours late, Richie: I already claimed this was the landing gear assembly! See Reply #119.

Richie, since when do aircraft steering wheels have fenders? Or forks? Or axels? Even BAE knows better! Maybe the fact that the tire is flat has your scaling confused.

Here's a view of the same landing gear  from the 2010 HD video.

Hi Tim

I will use the following image's to explain apparent

first image is of what LOOKS like shell of cockpit viewed from left side the right side as you can see has a big rock bashed on top

A, edge of roof hatch

B, right hand side of cockpit window

C, big rock on top of left side of cockpit window

Now second picture from about same distance, showing little tree's in odd straight lines, So now if you use the small tree's for scale, unless they are palm tree's, Your wheel is no bigger than a steering wheel

Thanks Richie

Richie, sorry, you've lost me. Here is the cockpit as I have seen it for months now, including the pilot's steering wheel, many instruments and the pilot's seat cushion, all as seen through the open hatch from above, to the left and to the rear of the cockpit. The attached picture compares the size of the landing gear tire (36" diameter inflated) to the height of the rudder (60 inches) and to the length of the fuel filler pipe (about 18 inches). Dimensions are taken from Harney.

Hi Again

Here is Ric's supposed coral object "arrow left

Arrow right points to what looks like a chrome colored tube/pipe

There IS a lot of interesting and anomalous geometry in this picture that is suggestive of something man-made among the shapes.  As to the "chrome colored tube/pipe", to me it is also suggestive of the edge of a 'cake pan' type of structure such as is sometimes found in seat pans, drip trays or similar nacelle-mounted objects and the like, and the 'bend' suggests the 'corner' of something like that. 

I wonder if more can be discerned about the color / reflective qualities of whatever it is - are we seeing a true 'color' and representative surface, or simply light momentarily reflected by an irregular surface anomaly that creates an illusion of what appears to be there?

Hi All

I believe this image shows possible parts of the engine, And underbelly antenna

Orange line, Engine Nacelle "partially buried so vent holes appear round instead of tear shaped"

Yellow line, Engine

White line, Under belly antenna post

This horse is dead and will not benefit from further flogging.  This and other topics discussing whether various shapes in the underwater video are or are not encrusted objects of interest have run their course.  Both sides have had more than adequate opportunity to state their case and flogging the subject further will not change anyone's mind.  We'll give the horse a decent burial by locking "Summary of Debris from 2010," "2010 Black and White Video of the Debris Field," and "Possible Rope video."  I'll leave "Underwater Airplane Parts" open but only as a discussion of what known underwater airplane parts look like in contexts other than Nikumaroro.  I'll remove new topics that attempt to revive discussions of objects seen in 2010 and 2012 underwater video unless and until Jeff Glickman advises me that he has found something worth discussing.
