Pictures of the crash site today
(Well sort of... unfortunately most of the wreckage was illegally removed about 5 years ago)

Wreckage in the creek. Wing section. Note the red insignia outline.
Section of the fuselage. This picture shows that it had the three tone paint scheme and the color of the zinc chromate.
More wreckage. This wing was found 1 mile away from the other and it is unknown if they are from the same plane.
Wreckage around the second wing. In this miniature pond, just below the surface is the R-2800 engine.
