Jeff H

due to distance of camera from Nessie i have used filters to get a idea of shape

wonder if the state enhanced image is similar in appearance ?

That's a good job Richie. The only question that springs to mind is 'what's holding it upright?'
The wheel at the bottom is clear to see, strut free to rotate around the hub.

To me the bottom one looks like a small solid wheel with an axle wrapped by half a broken off sleeve for the axle. Part of the sleeve looks like it was attached to a broken surface that was parallel to the wheel. Looks kind of recent. Or the break in the sleeve does.
It may meant for a garage door type roller guide. Like for sliding gear, drawer guide, sliding door or panel.

 :) A little off topic but if you would like to see what an ROV is really capable of, go here"

http://oceanexplorer.noaa.gov/okeanos/welcome.html

and look at the video from the shipwreck just discovered in 4000' of water in the Gulf of Mexico.
Truly spectacular video!

Here's a very similar shape to the door/hatch from the ROV video. Not conclusive evidence for sure but, it's where it is on the fuselage that makes it more interesting. Just to the left of the door/hatch in the ROV video and, to the right in the photograph from The Swoose (it flys) is a very odd outline that I couldn't place, until now. I'll post some images of the odd outline later.

This must be the place

Possible explanation for the odd shaped outline. From this angle in the first 3 images the door/hatch is to the right. In the last image it's to the left.

Due to the distance from the ROV the resolution on these images is dire. That said, yes it could be lumps of coral, yes scale is an issue etc... I don't deny that. So here goes
First image shows what I think we are looking at
Second image the outline of the supercharger, the shaped nacelle panel,
Third image the wheel as well
Last image is from a B17
Superchargers were fitted as standard from model B to G to improve engine performance at altitude. The possible 'supercharger' in the image is quite near to a possible 'wheel', that's helpful, they both live in the engine nacelle so, finding the possibles near to each other helps.

Guys, if these pics do actually show a supercharger, then it isnt the Electra. In this particular case, i hope youre wrong. But---what ever is down there, TIGHAR will find it.
There is the possiblilty of 2 aircraft that just happen to be in the same area on a remote island in the Pacific. i know, not scientific, and I'm thinking outloud again, but stranger things have happened.
