I had purposely left this crash site off my web site for fear of it being vandalized, but as well known as this site is, it appears that it has been vandalized none the less. It is up to those of us interested in these sites to respect them. If anyone knows who vandalized the wing please contact the Forest Service as requested by the flier, which is now also posted at the site.
