I just saw an interesting link detailing the history of the infamous propeller and how the hut crews take pride in trying to steal it from each other :lol: .

That's took pride.
Someone stole the prop.
Hasn't been seen in about 3 years.
Heathens!

Magic,

Didn't you want to hit a crash site when we did Moosilauke a couple years ago? Was that Blue?

I think I might be mixing the 2 up....maybe you just wanted to show us Blue?

Don't forget I suffer from CRS.

Scenic,NH do you have any coordinates or directions for that one?

Thanks!
Bill

Mt Blue is on one of those 'lists' with a cannister at the trail-less summit. I tried to get our group to go and bag it so that your names would be in the register like mine, so many years ago. The B-18 wreckage can be seen on the SE slope of Watermomee. I know the easy route to it. Anyone want to go. Say around Thanksgiving break?!

I wish I did have coordinates.
People say that the plane is somewhere in Oakes Gulf near Monroe, but no one knows where or has ever been to the crash site.

Things like this dont seem to go undiscovered this long, so I always questioned if the plane was removed back in the 70's. I first heard about it around 2000(I think) and have always asked around, but never could get any good info on where the crash site is(or was).

The only facts I know to be true is;
The crash was in 1969, the plane crashed in Oakes Gulf close to Monore, and three people died.

Found the accident report of this plane crash on the National Transportation Safety Board website.
http://www.ntsb.gov/ntsb/brief.asp?ev_id=4897&key=0
The report will make sense if you study it for a few minutes.

So I contacted National Transportation Safety Board to see if I could find more info out on the crash.

They cant tell from the above report if the wreckage was removed when it was found or if it's still there. They also said the full investigation report is no longer available, so we may never know.

Someone else also told me that someone over on views was looking into the crash. I looked over there, but could find any threads on it.

So no one knows......

The biggest parts are still there. The small parts have been taken as souveners over the past 60+ years. It's worth the visit, to me!

I've never explored the Oakes Gulf site. Perhaps it is getting to be time to.

 Oakes Gulf Plane Crash
I worked at Lakes in 1970 and found the plane that spring. We scavenged a bunch of stuff from the plane and then rolled it down into a rough and almost inaccessible area of Oakes Gulf. Some people from the croo of 2002 or 2003 found it that year and scavenged a few more pieces which they proudly showed me.
