Yes, Fairlane66, I'm sure wreckage continues to move downhill. The plateau near the site is still well above 10,000 feet (the mountain peak is at the 18,700)  and would still require much effort and professional climbers to reach due to its remoteness. There just are not a lot of people who regularly climb that high. It would be a costly undertaking.

I might be able to locate the plane, but I will not be free to do so until after the 24th (8/24/2018). Is this project still active? 


Also, I have been lurking for years so I should introduce myself. I am in academia, which has nothing to do with wrecks or aircraft. In my free time I develop algorithms that locate wrecks in HD GIS images.

OK johnnyduvall,
show us your stuff, find the C-141 crash site Bolivia. The Families still want help/closure.
and while you are at it, find C-54D 42-72469 Yukon Territory, Canada, 44 families want help/closure.

My brother, Dale Lake was a crew member on that flight. I have searched for any information about the crash site and recovery attempts for all these years. Freedom of Information Act didn’t provide any crash site or recovery reports. I'm so thankful to have found this site today, including a photo, an article, and postings of possible ways to look for the wreckage. I so appreciate all the recent posts.
Be safe

There is a real good story about this unfortunate crash in the MAC Flyer (March of 1975 pages 18-20) it also contains a picture of hikers going to the site.   I cannot paste and copy the magazine unless I join, you can read them however. https://www.hathitrust.org/ is the main website.  Oh the name of the story is "The Secret of Cordillera Real " Ray

Ray, thanks for locating this resource!  Quite interesting, especially having a site photo (as of Nov-Dec?).  Some new insights on conditions of the approach into La Paz with a 400 meter ceiling and temperature of one!

I was able to save all three pages as jpg files in case anyone wasn't able to download them. It took me awhile to find them even with the name, every search I did brought me to pages below the article, wasn't until I scrolled up I saw the article.

Thank you “ Rookie”, for locating the article and “Sixbyfire” for the downloaded article. Filled in some more pieces to the puzzle we’ll probably never fully put together in this life.

Heartfelt thank you 💜

From dave trojan in october 2017:

I've asked for a copy of the accident report, but they have not sent it to me yet.


Dave:  Did you ever get the official SIB?  If so, did it include the findings tab?

To all:  Does anyone have the SIB / Findings tab for this event?

Thanks

I have thanked Rookie and Jeff personally via email, but I want all of you to know that when you find and post this information, it matters on a deeper level. For those of us who have had to live with the tragedy all of our lives, that there is still an interest and the need to know. You are appreciated.

Ran into some more info on this accident. Is it possible that the correspondence was sent by or to Henry Kissinger? He was Secretary of State during this period. Interesting!  Ray
