old wreck on mountainside

Article about: Good eye, petehi, you are spot on. I can see the taper under the tail. I think it's Nevada or Calif. There are some great crash sites out there. I always go on hiking adventures when I burn

    yep i know what you mean i recon i have about 5 years before girls are more interesting than airplanes lol.
    i think i will take up fishing then.
    the pick is a crankshaft from a JU88 that crashed on the northeast coast.
    it was strafing a ship that shot back and winged it. since it was low it couldent climb above the hight of the clifs bur crashed on the beach instead.
    not much left years of storms and tides have seen to that but a good day out.
    now that has to be more fun than girls LOL
