As was mentioned on Dave Trojan's thread about the CIA releasing 13 million documents, we had found the crash report for Buster Eden's U-2G that we had been looking for over 20 years. In our defense, it is truly a micro site, very easy to miss as we had walked to within a few hundred feet of it on several trips out there. The pilot, Buster Edens, had been doing carrier approach and landing ops when he stalled and crashed near North Edwards and we took some time to remember him on a cold and windy day. We can finally look out in the area we'd walked so many times (even finding a P-38 site once) and know the one that seemed to have got away is a mystery no more.

And as an aside, Buster Edens has a star carved into the CIA Memorial Wall. His was one of the first 31... there are 117 now. His name also appears in the CIA's "Book of Honor" displayed in front of the wall...
