Here I believe is the fuel storage pit that the Marine M4A2 tank named CANNONBALL slipped into before exploding in fire. Note the crushed fuel drums, the F6F Fighter to the left on the main runway, the log revetment opening farther down the runway at top center and what seems to be the 'skid' marks in the side of the pit caused by the removal of the wrecked tank. The damaged log revetment seen in the photo of the actual tank is out of frame here to the left. I found this pic on FOLD3.
