North American P 51-D Mustang 44-72340 / WD-K
Rainforest 0 wreck-hunters 1
We located one of the wreckage piles from this crash site, whose close-packed spiky vegetation and deep ground cover defeated us (as it has many others) previously. Result!
Note that the coordinates below are plus or minus around 25m, (rather than our normal 5m) due to interference with our GPSr signal from the dense tree cover, so here's some additional assistance: there is a stream too small to appear on the 1:25K OS map in the vicinity of these coordinates. Close to the side of the stream is a really big boulder, the largest we saw in the wood. You should more or less be able to see the wreckage from this boulder.
