1994 Reunion Photograph of Crash Site on Ponape

In February 1994, Marine Bombing Squadron Six-Thirteen members and their wives returned to Ponape to visit the crash site of the squadron's aircraft that was shot down during the raid on February 6, 1945.  The aircraft crashed toward the bottom of the hill a short distance from the water tower.  Squadron members are seen here climbing a very steep hill to reach the position of a the Japanese anti-aircraft gun that shot their aircraft down.
