I have lived my whole life on Umnak Island in Nikolski. I have
worked recently at Fort Glenn which has a cattle ranch there.
I was so interested in all the military stuff and noticed the
military buried a lot of equipment when they left..A friend of
mine who worked there while the military was there said they
even buried airplanes and trucks. I was just curious if anyone
would ever go and dig all that stuff up.
On the Pacific side of Umnak
right across from the village is a place we call Washington's
Point. Me and my friends found two airplane wings way up on the
beach. From what it looks like the plane had gone down in the
ocean and the wings had floated ashore. They are definitely from
World War II but I'm not sure if it's American or Japanese. The
wings are very small, probably only 16 ft. or so long. I wonder
if anyone knows what they might be from?
