I took a different route back up the slope and was finding more items. No idea what this electrical/mechanical component is.
Was finding a lot of pieces with part numbers, but this is the only one that had the number painted on.
Electrical wire with terminals.
Another unknown item.
This doesn't look like it came from the bomber, looks more like a vent for a stove. Later found other items that look like they belong with this.
A piece from a breathing oxygen tank.
When I returned to the top of the slope, headed in the direction of flight and came upon another area with a lot wreckage.
There is a large burn area here. Looks this is the place most of the bomber came to rest and burned after impacting the slope.
This was a interesting looking part. It's about five inches in diameter and has a spring, no idea what it is.
The housing to one of the rheostats that control the heated flight suits.
Tuners from a radio, there were a few more of these in the area.
The frames with all the bolts are from the fuel bladders.
I've seen these before at other B-24 sites. It's a Blinker oxygen flow indicator.
Steel pieces, most of the aluminum has been removed.
Piece from a motor mount.
This was a strange looking item, it's about three feet across. Looks too thin to be armor.
Another item that looks out of place for a B-24 site. Looks more like a part from stove and the vent pipe that I found earlier looks like it would fit it.
Another item that doesn't look like it's from the plane.
There was also quite a few bricks scattered around at the site. All these things look to me that they were used by the folks who salvaged the site. Maybe something to melt down the aluminum at the site.
Fire damaged piece of aluminum.
This was an interesting looking piece. Thought that it was from one of the engine nacelles, but couldn't match it with any B-24 photos.
Closer view showing AN fittings on the bulkhead.
Another view of the same piece.
Smash piece of electrical equipment.
Lot of small pieces in this area.
Another piece from a engine head with an intake valve.
Think that this is a mast for a wire antenna.
The inside was lined with fiberglass.
Nearby was a porcelain insulator. This also looks like it's from a wire antenna.
Valve pushrod tube from one of the engines.
A large piece of partially melted aluminum.
Looks like the remains of either a flight or engine instrument.
Melted vacuum tube.
Small electric motor, it's about four inches in diameter.
Another of the heated flight suit rheostats with control cable and other parts.
Turnbuckles and cable embedded in melted aluminum.
Looks like part of a linkage, no idea where it's from.
An electric motor, but not sure what it's attached to. The motor is about four inches in diameter.
Wire beads from one of the tires.
This was an interesting looking part, it's about eight inches in diameter.
Another one was nearby. Checking photos of B-24s, found out that they are the sprockets that operate the bomb bay doors.
This piece has a lot of rivets. The chain looks like it's from the flight controls.
Another large piece of fire damaged aluminum.
A couple of tracks for the wing flaps.
Closer look at one of the flap tracks, it's about four feet long.
Piece from one of the magnetos with ignition wires.
An oil can, the marking on top of the can was a little hard to read, but it looks like it's,
