Dave, I was a member of the Vogelweh Rod and Gun Club while stationed at Ramstein in the late 80s.  We were hunting for small game along the runway and taxiways in front of the tower in the Fall of 89 and I was surprised to come across large pieces of wreckage left after the Italian demonstration team crashed at the Ramstein Flugtag.  Not only were there pieces of aircraft fuselage, but a landing gear strut with tire, engine parts, electrical wiring, a hydraulic accumulator, and other assorted bits and pieces.  If you get the chance, you might survey the site to see if anything is still left.  Like I said, I was surprised to find so much left after more than a year, especially since the site was readily accessible.
