Virtual Crash Site Tour

This site is designed to allow the visitor to be able to visit a crash site as close as possible without actually going there, by using only still photos and the Internet. There are over 25 web pages with almost 100 large photos to view of the crash site. In January 2001 AAIR lead a group of aviation enthusiasts from throughout Arizona area to the crash site of T-38A s/n 61-0928 and these are the photos from it. Special thanks to Charlie Schultz for the photos he contributed.
