I live in Reno and pretty new to wreckchasing and this message board. Is there a book out there that talks about crash sites in Nevada?

Not a single book that I know of, but there are many links to information about NV crash sites. You can search this message board for them. Also check out this link for more than a half dozen NV sites explored. http://www.aviationarchaeology.com/src/crashsites.htm

Thanks Dave I've been starting to look around the Reno area but I might try around Fallon too.

NV is a target rich place.

Wreckchaser702,
Not sure if you are new to wreck-chasing or have been doing it for awhile. Craig Fuller's AAIR web site has search function for WWII and some cold war crashes. He sells the reports at a modest fee, hopefully the photos and report will give you an area to search to locate the site.

I was living in Reno for small amount of time and there are many crashes in your area. I went to the Unv. of Reno library and would use their old news papers on microfilm for leads.

I would also recommend that you get your hands on the NV Civil Air Patrol crash list. The list will have dates and approximate locations. As a side-note, I have never once had the list give a correct location. But it will give you info on crashes to research.

Best of Luck
Brad

Just as a note the Tonopah area has many sites. If you contact the Allen Metschler at the Central Nevada Museum he has several identified by the old Army Air Base. He knows the area and where the sites are located. He is also very friendly and a nice guy.

Good Luck
