Think that this might be from a parachute harness.
Another piece from an engine mount.
Looking down the slope on the other side of the ridge, I could see that there was wreckage scattered all the way to the bottom. These are the first pieces I came upon as I made my way down.
More pieces as I continue down.
Fins from another bomb.
Looks like more pieces from an engine mount.
This was a nice find. It's the armor from the upper gun turret.
View from the other side.
This photo shows the thickness of the armor, looks about 3/8 of an inch.
Looking past another small group of pieces to the top of the slope as I near the bottom.
Piece of a window frame.
The box looks like a toolbox.
Lettering on the box. Found two of these on this slope.
Set of engine ignition points.
This wreckage in the canyon at the bottom of the slope was the first pieces that I spotted from the top. It's a hose that's about ten feet long and a section of exhaust manifold.
Better view of the exhaust manifold.
This tag from one of the Pratt & Whitney engines was laying in the bottom of the canyon by itself. It has some interesting information on it, including the blower and propeller ratios.
As I starting hiking out of the canyon to head back to the truck, started finding more parts from the engines.
These gears look like there from an engine.
Piece from a engine case. This was the last piece of wreckage I found on the way back to the truck.
This photo was taken from our camp site back at the Queen Mine. What look like three stars are actually the planets of Jupiter on the left, Venus at the bottom and Mercury on top about one hour after sunset above the Sierra Mountains.
Back on Hwy 395 just south of Lone Pine as I head home. This turned out to be a great trip, got to hang out with Sooz on her annual birthday camping trip and visit a interesting crash site.
