#8. KAPINGA ART

Created at the Kapinga village on Pohnepei - Peter Bristow collection
Book published by Bishop Museum, Honolulu about 1965 - details eye witness of aircraft being brought-down by one of it's own bombs when bomb was struck by anti-aircraft fire.  Possibly a B-17 bomber.  Five crew aboard - all perished.


The authenticity of this picture is not guaranteed - in other words it may not be from Kapinga.  We'll correct this in due course with a better caption if possible.
