Took off on a dive bombing mission against Ballale. Shot down over the island, likely by anti-aircraft fire. Likely, SBD Dauntless 11002 or SBD Dauntless 35976.

Justin Taylan adds:
"I searched for this wreckage in 2003 and 2005 and was unable to find it.  I am sure it is still there, but its a portion of the island where there is no GPS signal to get a firm waypoint."
