Was surprised to find the engines next to each other.
These 3,350 cubic inch 18 cylinder turbocharged engines put out over 2,800 horsepower each.
Both of the engines had cylinders torn off.
You can see a couple of pistons in this shot.
Close up of the big pistons.
This section of the fuselage was between the engines.
Me with an engine. The other engine can be seen in back.
This engine is in better shape than the other one.
Closer view. Wanted to stay longer, but it's getting late. Time to start hiking out.
Climbing up the little valley found this air vent.
Another engine part.
This large piece was almost covered by the pine needles.
Looking up to the saddle I'm heading for.
This looked like a door.
It had this on it. Maybe it's a loading ramp??
Looking down from about half way up.
Another propeller blade. Found all the blades expect one.
Me with the blade to show its size. This thing must be about a hundred pounds.
Back up on the ridge, I got a good view of Mount Baden-Powell and Throop Peak.
Looking back on the crash site as I hike out. Spent 3 hours at the site, I'll be back.
Back up on the main ridge I got a view to the south. Clouds pouring over the 6000'+ peaks, Cool.
Spent a lot of time watching the clouds as I hiked out.
Zoomed in on the clouds flowing through the trees. Looked better in real life.
View to the south from the ridge.
The clouds spilling through a saddle. That's where my car is parked.
Another shot of the saddle from further down the trail. Looked like a waterfall in slow motion.
The clouds were really flowing as I approached the saddle, great stuff.
Almost back to the saddle. Temps dropped about twenty degrees in the clouds.
When I got back to the saddle the clouds were almost gone, bummer.
Sunset from the Angeles Crest Hwy on the drive home.
The wreckage of the C-119 is near the location of a C-46 tail on the north side of the ridge. The photos from my hike to the north slope showing the C-46 tail and the remainder of the this C-119 wrechage is at this link http://joeidoni.smugmug.com/gallery/1894019
