BELOW: Other fragments can also be found in the craters.

 

I would hazard a guess from the large amount of wood screws concentrated in a small area and the pieces of molten alloy that the MU (Maintenance Unit) burned what remained of the Mosquito's wooden components in these pits. [Gary]

 

Other fragments can also be found in the craters.
