It was a great conference and I would like to thank everyone who gave a  presentation. I learned a lot from the interesting subjects covered. It was also nice meeting some new people and seeing old friends again.

Craig, you did a great job putting this together and guiding the field trips, thanks.    

Joe

A great conference - again!  Got back late last night after a long search for the site of the Seligman CAA airfield.

The presentations were excellent and the high-desert field trip was, as usual, very rewarding - after a long search, the MACR photos did the trick after all.  Just wish we'd seen a few of those well-guarded tortoises!  Nellis is a good venue, and everything went smoothly. The dual-screen facility was much better this year. 

Thanks for all your hard work, Craig, we know it was a real challenge - you did a great job!

I also would like to thank Craig as well as all of the presenters; I really enjoyed my first Aviation Archaeology conference!   The presentations were all very interesting and it was great meeting many of you!  

 

Looking forward to finally getting out to check out some sites this year and hopefully attend next year's conference.  Great job, Craig!

 

Brenda

I just wanted to drop a quick note to also commend Craig and the speakers on a truly outstanding conference that exceeded my expectations.  The presentations were fascinating, insightful and very inspirational.  

I was also impressed by the amount of serious research being done in this field.  One takeaway that I came away with is that there are lots of different ways to get involved in this field.  From monitoring the changes to specific crash sites over time to the serious business of locating still missing aircrew and passengers and everything in between -Aviation archaeology is a field that is wide open.

Unfortunately I had to leave a little early, so I wasn't able to say my goodbyes in person so I will have to do it here - To Sam, Steve, Joe, Trey, Dave, Ralph, Pat and many other who I met for the first time, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you all and I look forward to seeing you again at future conferences and crash outings.  Please feel free to reach me on this board and send me a PM for my home e-mail account.

Sincerely,
Mark Petersen

Well thank you for the thank yous! Although the credit really goes to you guys for the great presentations and the company. We had a large number of presentations on diverse topics and there was a good bit of networking and information shared by all. 

I’m already looking forward to next year!

I finally got my pictures uploaded from the hike to the mid-air collision of the two F-80C's that we checked out on Friday: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sixbyfire/sets/72157629973236135/

 

If anyone wants to use the photos for their own web sites, feel free to do so provided you at least mention you have permission from Jeff to use them.

 

Thanks and enjoy!

Great Photos, Jeff!

Each conference seems to be better than the last; this was a particularly enjoyable meet. Thanks to Craig F. for a job well done!

Finally got a chance to post the photos from last months visit to the F-80C crash sites. This was a group field trip organized by Craig Fuller and was done the day before the start of the AAHA conference. Craig made copies of the photos from the crash report and handed them out to the group of about 25 that were on the hike. We used the landmarks in the photos to locate the sites. Photos from the hike are HERE

Great photos Joe! I've been waiting for someone else to post their pics from the hike.

 

If you didn't see it, I've got a good shot of you with that larger piece of plexiglass:

Very nice pictures Joe. That projectile point almost looks like an Elko point. It is difficult to tell without measurements. But The Elko tends to date from around 4000 to 1000 BP(before present) Now that is just my guess, due to the fact that it closely resembles some I found while working with the USFS.

Nice shots Jeff, you got good photos of a bunch of stuff that I missed. The first impact site we found just had so much stuff there to see and photograph. I like how you were able to ID alot of the stuff too.

I like your shot holding up the crash report photo with the hills showing how to line them up, I did much the same in this shot I took: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sixbyfire/6999793100/in/set-72157629973236135
