I was just exploring Little Pine Island via Bing Aerial Maps just west of the Mud Hole and noticed what appeared to be rather large two engine plane in the mangroves. It is about 2,800 feet west of the Mud Hole and is not visible on Google Earth. Anyone familiar with this and know its' history?

Interesting find Johnk! Are you sure that is a downed plane or just one caught flying low over the island in the picture? I think I see the reflection of the plane on the water behind it. Drug run?

May possibly be a low flying plane. Had not crossed my mind. Sure looks like it is grounded.

Also, a low flying plane would explain why it doesn't show up on Google Earth. It wasn't flying by when the GE photo was taken!
