Old Palmer Trail Plane Wreckage
The Old Palmer Trail Plane Wreckage lies south of Blodgett Peak and to the west of the Flying W Ranch. The wreckage consists mostly of the landing gear and many pieces of metal scattered on the hillside. The plane was a B24 and went down on April 26, 1944 at 9:00 PM. Seven men lost their lives in the crash. Thank you to Len Wallace for the information.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE: It is against the law (Federal Antiques Act) to touch or take anything at a WWII crash site if it is on Federal Land (this crash is on National Forest service property). It is a FELONY to take anything. Please respect the site and leave it as you found it.
