Hey Al ! Definitely off Red1 but further out. I think Jon's right about one burning/smoking. I believe it is leaking oil too. If you look at #011 and enlarge it, you can see the same two tracs on the horizon to the northwest. I believe they show up in some other pics as well. Yes, the pics are great! Hope you are having as much fun as George :)

    From what I can make out and following the sequence of the photos, the two LVT-1's facing each other are off of Red-1. Notice all the tracks imprinted in the coral. They are LVTs and most likely M4... more

            Yep. #29 shows both of the LVT-1s. I think the cameraman couldn't help but take that picture in #81. Unique amongst the photos here.

              So many derelict LVTs shown. Nine in the water and another eight or nine on the beach!

                The still picture belies how terrible it must have been. I think I recall that thirty something could not be accounted for (sunk)? The more you find, the more you understand just how really bad it... more
