Zero is one of five wrecks on the fromer airbase at Yap, many of these are heavily riddled with scrapnel holes from repeated bombing.

Krater perhaps illustrates best the fate of the Japanese aircraft on Yap island. The bomb crater is surrounded by fuel bowsers and the engine of an A6M5.

Tail is to give you an idea what the description dense bush means. Perhaps many more wrecks are hidden under such a green canopy and cannot be found any longer.
