Wow - now THAT level of detail is impressive.

Well, well worth the trip to NZ, I'd say!

I assume the Study Group has studied this object. It appears in the shape of a fuselage with a stubbed port wing, rounded where one would expect to find the engine, empennage missing, but open aft. A dark area appears in the position of the Pilot's hatch. The rear of the apparent fuselage seems to be somewhat elevated and casting a shadow on the bottom.

See below.

from the Wiki page re Norwich City Survivors' Shelter to give some idea as to scale: "Both Norwich City lifeboats washed ashore on Gardner. They were likely 26' in length and weighed 1800 pounds fully equipped."

What is the cylindrical-looking object viewed end-on at the left edge of the frame right at the edge of the shrub/tree line?

Richie, it's from frame #47, the last in the entire series which we ordered from the Museum (<$800, BTW). Resolution is approx. 15000 squared.

Richie, Tim's "apparent fuselage" is in our _DSC347.  It's also in the July 18, 2012 GeoEye satellite image.  Like all of Tim's airplane parts it's made out of coral.  I've walked past it many times.

Thank Goodness for an eye-witness account in which I can believe. But Ric, are you sure it is coral, and say, not lava? Have you had a sample analyzed?

Quite sure. I suggest you read up on coral atolls.

Ric, or someone in the photos study group -- Can you indicate on the satellite image of the island where the image of the Norwich City lifeboat is located?

Thanks,

Jeff P.

DSC0272 - the last of the '38 photos on Tighar's Flikr photo stream. On the near left hand shore just to the right of the scratch in the film.

This image shows where the lifeboat is in relation to the shipwreck - just where it should be.  BTW, what's that thing back in the bushes?

Looks like an airplane. Note fuselage, wing and engine (port) nacelle.

Just as camels in the sky, these fotos are very conducive to bunnies in the bushes.

Is that a trail in the bush as you look at it to the right?

I've been looking at that "trail", and the more I study it, it looks to me to be a flaw in the negative.

Any suggestions as to scale in that vicinity?  there's a pretty big boulder just off the beach below it, any guess as to the size?

As for who found it - that's Ric's credit, I just put words to it. Unless it's the breakthrough we've all been waiting for, then I'm all over it!
