Finding an aircraft crash site is 95 percent research and five percent field work. To be successful at finding historic aircraft wrecks, a Wreckchaser must do the homework first. This book is the starting place for anyone interested in aviation, history, research, hiking, and historic preservation.


Wreckchasing 101: A Guide to Finding Aircraft Crash Sites teaches readers how to research and locate an historic aircraft’s final resting place, takes readers to more than 20 commercial and military crashes, and provides research resources including the longitude and latitudes for more than 500 aircraft wrecks, plus data on more than 1,700 other aircraft crashes. The book also provides information on how to obtain crash reports – both civil and military, how to obtain military individual aircraft record cards, topo maps, a list of Internet resources, and a list of recommended reading.
