Does anyone have the coordinates of where Lt. Bishop's plane/engine is off of Bellows?

Sorry, but rarely will people share coordinates of sites because of the threat of pilfering.  I am not accusing you of this, just informing you of why you might not get a response on this. On occasion, once someone is established and recognized as a trustworthy "member" sites might be shared. 
There have been cases where people "figured out" a site based on background in pictures, and some sites ended up being pilfered because of this.  Some are now even altering their pictures before posting to protect the history of these sites.  Dennis

Thanks for the info. I live in in Kailua and my son and his girlfriend of 4+ years are coming to visit in June.  Her grandfather is Lt Samuel Bishop, the pilot of the P-40 Warhawk that went down over the Mokes on Dec 7.  She was born in 1992, 4 years after he passed, so she never knew him but she has been raised with his story.

I received other emails from other members, and understand the concern of pilfering. I live in in Kailua and my son and his girlfriend of 4+ years are coming to visit in June.  Her grandfather is Lt Samuel Bishop, the pilot of the P-40 Warhawk that went down over the Mokes on Dec 7.  She was born in 1992, 4 years after he passed, so she never knew him but she has been raised with his story.  Trying to share pertinent sites for her visit.  Lt. Bishop's flight jacket is in a display at MCBH, and one of the two pilots killed at Bellows- Hans Christiansen is interred at Punch Bowl (interestingly 2nd LT Christiansen was born the week WWI ended and was killed in the first US Battle of WWII- he turned 100 last Nov).
Thanks,
Russ Morgan
