I visited this crash site in June of 2019. Still a fair amount of debris there. There was evidence someone was there with a metal detector, holes dug
up with fragments beside the holes. My cardinal rule is, and shall remain, to take no debris. Nor will I give out coordinates to any of these sites,
so don't ask. I made the mistake a few years ago, someone begged me ("I'm an Eagle Scout, I'm a Veteran, I promise not to even TOUCH any debris")
to give him coordinates to the A-12 crash site near Wendover, NV. Then I discover the a-hole is peddling debris parts from the site on eBay. Never

When I first visited that site in January 1999, I wondered if the bulk of the wreckage might have been buried in the crater and bulldozed over. A few
years later, a guy from Fernley (near Reno) visited the site with a backhoe and excavated about 3,000 pounds of debris including both intact canopies,
and took it all home. I seem to recall seeing the canopies for sale on eBay at one time.
