Is anybody out there familiar with this law? I just heard about it while on vacation. It seems to supersede the laws on non-Navy aircraft, and contains a line that could pertain to wrecks that are not submerged. It sucks!  Dennis

The Naval History Agency website has a write-up on the act.  The Act was part of the 2005 National Defense Authorization Act:

The line in question regards military craft "anywhere in the world". I doubt it would stand up to legal scrutiny if someone tried to apply the act to dry land, as the rest of the act clearly deals with "sunken" craft.

The Law is violation of US Code's and the USAF has said on record that they will not enforce this law. The US Navy claims also are in violation of The National Historical Preservation Act since they claim ownership under Section 106 but they don't even complie with Section 110 and 111.
