Wreckage of a PBM-5

2008-12-15 15:47:01.873484+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

From our hike on Sunday, Charley pointing out some particulars about the wreckage of a PBM-5 that crashed into the side of Mt. Tamalpais back in 1944, shortly after taking off from Alameda, en-route to Hawaii. Image of the report here.

Finding this site, which wasn't all that hard, sparked interest in finding the wreckage from a pair of F4U Corsairs which had a mid-air collision back in 45, and left the results somewhere around the top of Cataract Creek.

That is a really odd shot. It looks like a siamese twin with one head and two torsos!

Yeah, Dave is standing behind Charley.
