    Although this is more recent than some, the wreckage looks surprisingly ‘fresh’. It could be the materials used of course.
    Good info and shot as usual Ian

      Hello ‘Ian’. I think I may have ‘posted’ on under wrong name. My friends uncle was the pilot. Ha has expressed a wish to visit the site and pay his respects. Could you let me have a 6 or 8 fig. grid ref? Or failing that any directional info. you can supply.

      Many thanks. I hope you can help.
      Alan

    Thank you for clarifying, Paul. I never would have thought it was actually that steep, and that Ian had amazing, wizard-like illusionary powers… 😉 ;D

    Great shot , Ian! The light and the darkness makes the spot look even more precarious. Nice work!

    Thanks everyone. It was pretty steep in parts, wobbly rocks but at least it was in the sun so all the ice had melted.

    fascinating stuff. Wrecks in the Sierras will be far more preserved than anything here, climate and absence of people. Something terribly sad about ending up in so lonely a spot.
