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.
