Bessie Brazel Schreiber is Mac Brazel's daughter. What follows is her description of wreckage from the crash.
The material resembled a sort of aluminum-like foil. Some of these pieces had a sort of tape stuck to them. Even though the stuff looked like tape, it could not be peeled off or removed at all.

One of the pieces looked like something on the order of tinfoil, except that it wouldn't tear. You could wrinkle it and lay it back down and it immediately resume it's original shape... quite pliable, but you couldn't crease or bend it like ordinary metal. Almost like a plastic, but definitely metallic. Dad once said that the Army had once told him it was not anything made by us.
There was also some threadlike material. It looked like silk, but was not silk, a very strong material without strands or fibers like silk would have. This was more like a wire, all one piece or substance.
