The Legend of Airplane Canyon

Story of F-100 Super Sabre wreck located near the old west town of Cherry Creek Nevada

There are many stories that are passed down through generations in the western United States to become folklore. This is one such story that was investigated to learn the tragic truth about what happened so long ago. An F-100 Super Sabre jet fighter was lost back in 1957. This story reveals the truth about what happened to the jet and what still remains a legend in the old west. The setting for this story is the nearly ghost town of Cherry Creek in north central Nevada. The main occupations there are hunting, gold prospecting, drinking, and storytelling. All these elements came together for this story.
story continues... 19 pages long!

One thing I want to add that did not make it into the story. 
Those mining trails and roads were rough. We got a flat on the way out. We successfully changed it and made it out of there. The truck has now been broken in and ready for more.

Another great story and site visit. Urban exploration and aviation archaeology all in one this time around.

I would not call Cherry Creek "Urban", far from that!

The town has been described as historic, remote, rural, and uncivilized!

Heh, it's a generic term. Even some people that go into sewers, tunnels, or old mines still call it urban exploring. Sort of like checking out any abandoned place.

I know I'm necro-ing an old thread but I happened to run across Dave's story on this while researching and decided to take a shot at it with GE.  Found it after a little while.  Must be a nice site given most everything is there.  RIP 1Lt. Samuel Bacon.
