Hi there, I'm Nick and I'm new here. I write, like planes, weapons, history, tattoos and hiking. I am trying to find out about a supposed warplane wreck near San Mateo Landfill/Timberland/Mt Mataba area of the Philippines after a local Filipino man told me of this. He was a teenager in the 70s and lived on the mountain, listed today as Mt Mataba on google maps. That is the wrong peak. I found out after reading 6 Division US Army battle accounts. Of course the document has no supporting maps or diagrams. I relied on the wrong location on google. Good job it was wrong! It took me to the wrong place!!! Good luck there. I met a local man. He's a lot older now. His teen years were spent on the mountain. He found dozens of dead Japanese soldiers, bones, with helmets, glasses, rifles, dog tags etc etc. He buried the bones and still has the rifle which i saw and photographed. He took me to the open Japanese tunnels. The soldiers were killed in their battle positions. Not partly in the tunnels as on the real Mt Mataba by Mango Gorge. The entrances were blown up and sealed entombing many troops alive. Seems they're still there, inside. Japan still looks for soldier remains today. Anyhow, the local man told me of an aeroplane wreck! This was after i asked my question, where's the plane wreck. He pointed and told me. Historic wreck now. Site is under a rubbish dump. San Mateo Landfill site. But the alloy metal was recycled to the junk shop. I need to ask the guy how many engines the plane had. Anyhow... i thought the alleged plane was a P-38 Lightning as they flew over the area on recon and close support missions. Or was the plane a P-47 or 51 or other? I do not think it was US Navy Hellcats though like the wreck sites at Clark. USAAF air support on call by US Army. Unlike Navy hitting other stuff. Anyone help on this? Thanx.
