WWII Airplane Graveyard


An Airplane graveyard littered with pieces of wrecked WWII planes can be found on the northeast side of Angaur. If you look hard enough through the dense vegetation, a relatively intact F4U Corsair and pieces from several B-24s as well as C-47 can be spotted. After a visit, you may agree that the towering ironwood trees with their elaborate root systems is as interesting as the planes and even easier to recognize.
