Matt, if you can imagine a section of aircraft skin finally being freed from the superstructure it was once fastened to then it would be at the mercy of the tides/currents/storms etc...
Being lightweight and thin by it's very nature plus, a large area in comparison to it's thickness, it would not take much to set it on it's way.
The main problem with sections of aircraft skin being washed up on the Pacific Islands during this era is that WW2 was raging and there were an awful lot of aircraft around at that time in the Pacific theatre of operations. So a lump of aircraft skin turning up on an island could have come from hundreds of sources. If WW2 hadn't got in the way (bad timing) then a lump of aircraft skin being washed up on a Pacific Island during this era would have stuck out like a beacon.
That's just my opinion of course and, is open to debate (no more discussions on philosophy please, try and keep the thread on topic)
To recap:
WW2= lots of sources of wreckage
No WW2= one source of wreckage?

He did ok I guess. Needs to be stronger in his convictions, no use putting players on who are not in form, they know who they are...
Best player for England in tournament, Glen Johnson.

Hear, hear!

I don't see how that would not have been taken off the plane.

It's just way too useful on land and (I imagine) useless on board the plane.

Talking with Art Carty about what areas have and have not been searched by TIGHAR, I've become persuaded that it would be worthwhile to look for the remains of "Camp Zero."  That is where I would expect to find the hand ax and other useful metal items easily hauled to shore but perhaps not so easily hauled around the island.

It would be even more useful to the lucky native Islander who found it, worth a chest of gold doubloons to them. Wouldn't want to tell anyone they found it though, someone might want to take it off them for further examination. Best keep it quiet, makes my coconut plantation work easier  ;D
