This is an update to the earlier post images.  I had looked at the image a bit more and noticed a set of three tracks that appear to be the two engines and fuselage that start at the top right with three deep indentations and turn towards the left and then down the mountain to the item that I believe is an aircraft fuselage and engines.  I have copied a C-47 image and used it as an overlay on "snail trail 2" to the set of three tracks.  This is what I believe is the path of the aircraft from the point of impact to the item that I identified in the "snail trail 1" image.

Thanks,
Paul

I have launched a new blog.

And, I've written an article regarding this loss.
Thanks to everyone here in this forum who has brought this and similar cases to light. I am forever indebted to this great group of folks.

I replaced Lcdr. Kuhn in Chile after the loss of the C47. We did search again the following spring, but found nothing.
I was a Navy lieutenant and aviator at that time.
Contact me for details.

Hi Jerry, thank you for letting me know this. You’re the first person to tell me this. Everyone I asked, including family members, and those one would think would have known, stated to me that no one had ever gone back again to search. So again thank you for this new information.
There is a renewed search effort going on right now.

It wasn’t the approach I would have taken, and we had little notice, however if you or anyone would like to help or donate, go here:

I have other questions for you for which I would like to know the answer. So I’ll message you outside of this forum.

Thanks!
