The Pilot Allen site

Figure 1
Veteran Malaita Islander Jonathan Fifi’i travelled to Honolulu in May 1988, a guest of the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. On the occasion he wrote some memoirs and recollected  about a young American  “Pilot Allen” who ditched his plane at the mouth of the Sinalanggu Harbour on Malaita’s mid-East Coast during the war. Historical research is ongoing to identify the pilot. Can you help? It appears most likely the aircraft was a single seat fighter. [Excerpt from 1: 50,000 Map Series X715, Sheet 0816113, 2007].
