Dave,

 THANK YOU for posting the link to the CIA info dump! Pete and I finally found Buster Eden's U-2G (#N804X) crash site this morning after marching through that part of the desert off and on for over 20 years. We had missed the site by perhaps a few hundred yards when we compared our search notes.

Tony

Here are a few pictures from the expedition. Nice to finally find it after being so close so many times before.

Dave,

 Thanks again! And just for the record, those were Pete's "viewshed" photos

Hi Dave I was wondering if you know where on the CIA site they would have crash reports? I have looked for quite a while and searched quite a few different ways but don't see an area for crash reports. I have filed a FOIA on one but if they are accessible on the CIA site that would be much easier.
Thanks Dave Mihalik

I don't know where the accident reports are for CIA aircraft. Maybe the X-Hunters know?
