B-29 Super Fortress

Puerto Rico,Caribbean

In 1996 an official survey was done on this airplane wreck, but her exact identity was impossible to prove. Since only the center fuselage and wing assembly is fairly intact, there was no clear evidence to be found. The survey concluded it could be the remains of the B-29 Super Fortress with tail number 42-65287 that was lost in Puerto Rica waters, and was assigned to US Army 17th Bomber Operational Training Wing. The battered remains of her rest today on a depth of approximately 34 meter in Bahia de Aquadillo, about two nautical miles outside Aquadilla Pueblo.
