This hunk of rusting metal may have once been Naval crane assigned to the Naval Air Station. One veteran said that when the Army came, they often borrowed the crane. See the crane being used by the Army in 1942 to emplace 3-inch (75mm) anti-aircraft guns. Most of the cab has rusted away. It is on Virublennoi Island and is hard to find
