Justin Taylan visited in November 2003:
"Although very little of this wreck remained, the locals had discovered
an aerial bomb next to the wreck, and dug it up. It appeared
to be a 60kg bomb. They had called the local Police to remove it
but they never showed up, so they have the bomb stored in a pig pen
ran out of digital camera space, and only took video footage of the
bomb (will add later). I wonder if its still there. The aircraft
had a 3-bladed propeller. There is a chance this wreck is a Ki-51
Sonia, but I feel its an Ki-43-II Oscar. See photos for all images,
anyone have any other ideas?"
