Thanks Dennis. 

I am/was a very active person, so it has been difficult. 

Getting better.

I'd be interested in getting back there to get a look around. PM if you are interested in meeting up for the wreck chase.

I got a copy of the 1982 article by Carson Brewer on the crash site. It seems to contradict much of the crash report. I guess its time to start walking the hill sides looking for it again.

Interesting enough there is a C-141 crash site within 1.5 miles from the B-17 site (where ever that is).  The C-141 site is much easier to find but it looks like it has been cleaned up so I'm not sure what there is to find but I'll find out.

I'm thinking maybe Monday going back to take a look around. I need to get out into the woods.

Any progress on this site? I was hopping to get out there earlier in the year but that has not happened yet. I plan to see if there is anything left of the C-141 that crashed close by also when I get a chance to go back out there.

I am finally in good enough shape to go hike rough terrain (after being injured most of last year). 

I might not make Tennessee again until next spring. 

Just got back from the Aviation Archaeology meeting in Colorado and an unsuccessful attempt in Utah. 

Would love to go to the B-17.  Maybe I'll go with my wife to Tenn when she goes in Sept (my mother in law lives there) and I"ll be in position to go after it. 

TonyM.

Good to hear you are getting back onto your feet!

I'm thinking of heading there in a few weeks. There is a C-141 crash site within a mile of the B-17 site. I have much better info on the C-141. But if I camp in the meadow I will have lots of time to look over the mountain side.

But First I might go looking into what should be a B-24 Main tire in a creek-bed near Asheville, NC. I'm hoping that will be a lead on the B-24 that crashed in the area.

I am going to try to get to this site in March of this year, 2020, just wandering if anyone has been to it recently. I last visited it around 1968. Only pieces of aluminum were there at the time.
