Wartime History
This B-29 crashed into a hill near Mount Tapachau on Saipan Island.

According to the Saipan Pictures Blogspot site:
"In the last few days of WWII an American B-29 made a landing approach at Isley Field. The bomber could not land on the initial approach due to bad weather and was forced to circle around for another attempt. It crashed on the west side of Mt. Tapochao killing the entire crew".
