Justin Taylan visited on October 22, 2007:
"I visited this crash site of a twin engine aircraft with Kieth Hopper. It was in waist deep water when we visited. Nearly all of the aircraft is scrapped or covered under the sand. Visible were the wing, fuselage and tip of one blade of each propeller. From an extrusion at the rear fuselage for a top turret, we speculated this is a A-20 Havoc."
