  F4U Corsair Bureau Number ?  

Discovered by Mondo villagers in September 2002 near Nugus Point on Ranongga Island.

Andrew Kats reports:
"I dived a newly discovered Corsair wreck. A elderly village chief remembered a pilot parachuting into the village and they successfully transported him to a PT Boat camp. The plane was intact with little engine damage and the canopy was missing. I couldn't find the serial number behind the seat but some further investigating is in progress and a further dive will be taking place in the forthcoming weeks."
