Jeff, I agree 100%. Too many things there for all of them to be "natural". Just my opinion and you know how those are, but I think this site is part of the cockpit area "an aircraft".  I have trouble not saying "the Electra". Too many coincidences.
That's exactly what we thought it was as well Woody. You can see the the strips of metal which once held the windows in place. Also it could be part of an instrument panel inside it (reverse side). Richie posted a pic of this earlier in the thread in which he outlined where the windows went, eerie. Yes it's difficult not to say Electra, how about DC3?

I'd rather say "Electra" but I guess we don't have that indisputable evidence yet. Just an adundance of circumstantial stuff.

So if the object in the white circle is the remains of a radial engine and the red semi-circles are the cowling/nacelle remains then I would hope to see a bit of the wing very close by, yellow lines leading edge and rib, red lines point to rib. POSSIBLY IMHO

I'll try to sqeeze as much out of the 3 minute ROV footage as I can. Reason? It might, repeat, might just be enough to persuade someone to part with enough cash to get Ric and the team back to Niku for a better look/grab.
Probably not going to get a lot more images without using effects now but, I have a few more areas of interest that could be useful without too much in the way of Hollywood effects.
There's a possibility of the remains of a hinge? on top of the cockpit remains, anyone have any ideas or info regarding that possibility?
Also the hinge assemblies for the nosecone?
Am having trouble locating the main spar, shouldn't be 'cos it's a fair lump of metal. I have a mental image of the layout of the wreckage but sometimes it doesn't fit together as you would expect i.e. it didn't sink and settle in one gentle act of surrender, it put up a good fight from daylight to the depths.
I'll try to get the wreckage layout down on paper first, it might help in locating other bits :-\

On closer inspection of picture 2 in previous post the wire/rope/cable in the foreground seems to resting on something interesting.

Richie, there are two cases where there are attachments like that on the Electra. 1st where the  ventral (belly) radio antenna attached to the fore and aft antenna masts. 2nd where the dorsal (upper) radio antenna attached to the forward antenna mast and each of the vertical stabilizers. Notice that the upper antenna seems to be a bare wire while the lower one seems to have some type of coating or cover on it.

Hey Richie,  that chain-like object certainly does look like the end of one of the antenna cables. It sure would be nice to have some kind of scale to compare it to.  Keep looking.  LTM-John
