POST-WAR REMNANTS: Hikers stumble upon a B-29 Superfortress engine while trekking on Mt. Tapochao. This particular plane was used to drop food supplies into prisoners-of-war camps. On the day of the crash on Aug. 27, 1945, the plane had just come from an airfield in Pampanga, Philippines to pick up cargo parachutes. It was attempting to land on Isley Field on Saipan but the bad weather condition and poor visibility made it impossible. There were no survivors among the 10-member crew. (Bea Cabrera)
