Force landed ditched off Makin Island, straight out from the Catholic mission which can be seen at low tide.
"I have never found this wreck myself. Reportedly, it a fairly complete F4U in the lagoon
reef about half a mile off shore east of Kings wharf. The tail has
been ripped off and the engine is gone (its ashore)."
