Forum logo Where does TIGHAR think the airplane was landed?

The latest information leads us to suspect that the plane was landed on the reef near the ocean just north of the wreck of the Norwich City (see map), and later broken up by the action of the surf. Debris seems to have washed across the reef-flat and, if anecdotal accounts by former residents are accurate, the main body of wreckage may well have ended up in the treeline along the shore (such as is shown in the wreck photo). Other wreckage seems to have washed through the main lagoon passage and washed up on the lagoon shore. It seems logical to assume that other non-floating debris wound up on the lagoon floor just inside the main passage.
