This is what people are talking about when they say "pieces" usually.

There's a pretty good F-4 out there too. There are a couple that people have been looking for and haven't found a single clue that I'd love to find too.


That may be a ATS trip for the aviation nuts here. A trip to Edwards, Nellis, Rainbow Canyon, and perhaps hunting down a fallen bird!

Next summer, Sam and I are spending at least most of a week at Palm, Edwards, and Mojave. There's a site or two there that we can get to. At least three or four days. Maybe we can swing at least Jedi into that too.

Much less interested in digging up on old F-117 site though they put stuff in that skin that is no bueno for health

There are a few out there. You can get some instruments and bits of cockpit stuff from what I hear.

I'd be more worried about the toxins used in the RAM coating that are pretty toxic having leached into the ground

i have heard that bats and other night creatures using sonar were dying on the runways with the 117's im not sure if thats allegory or a real story.

i assume it was from them running into the jets because the sonar couldn't see the jets, like birds hitting windows. or if it was some emission electrical or other wise

A few F-117 pilots have written about the dead bat phenomenon on the tarmac in one book or another. On the other hand they were seldom parked out in the open with a few notable exceptions.
