Question Submitted by Lee Johnson, UXOInfo.com reader.
While researching the site of a Lockheed Lodestar crash, we located this unusually shaped object. Although this was a WWII aircraft crash site, the object appears to predate that era due to the rough cast iron 'casing'. We originally thought it was part of the aircraft until cleaning revealed what appears to be a brass 'fuse' plug on the 'front' end.
