one hour of walk, we arrive on the site of the crash and find the
engine of the plane. I do not know if this plane is known or unknown.
But on the map that I have, it was not situated.
|An other view of the engine.
We find only on engine and we though it was a hunter plane.
||Far away, we found a wheel
at position S17°32,101 E168°14,107. We think that the trees
catch the wheel first, just before the crash of the plane, because
the wheel are far away from the other parts of the plane.
The place of the crash covered
a great area. The plane exploded in many small scrap of metal.
