Here's a couple of shots. I know he was flying left to right when it went in. These two pictures may not show enough to point out where it went in.

Thanks

Joe,

Sorry for the delay in responding but I was out Cali and got back this morning.

Look in the white area. That's where I saw it go down.

Thanks for looking and good luck!

Beave

Follow the tree line on the left of the picture straight into the woods. Was about 20 feet above the trees and dropping. Maybe about 500 yards in I would think, maybe less. Hope that helps.

Yeah, one guy looked for awhile today but he had to stop because they needed the ATV. I'm going out tomorrow. I think people are looking too deep, based on what you're saying. Those woods are really thick though.

Thanks for your help Beave.

It's too bad we cant get a "right now" picture from Google Earth. Is there a site that can be used that way?

They took the Kit Fox out and looked around a couple days later, but saw nothing. It was raining, but came up empty.

That white box is where I found a TV and a bunch of bottles. Can't believe it, I can find a 19" black and white TV but not an airplane. Must have been using the wrong glasses.

No problem, I would want the same if the situation was reversed. Headed out now to the field.

I had an F16 that flew away thanks to a bad spektrum radio. Spent a week looking for it. Even had a friend with a full size cub look and no luck. So I cut a hole out in an old trainer plane that my son used and stuck a small camera inside. Then took off and rode in the back of my truck while a friend drove it near the crash site. I flew a grid pattern back and forth and then used my laptop to go reveiw it. I ended up finding it that way crashed in some mud. Worked perfect.

So a lowcost way that wokred for me was just a simple 60 size trainer with a hole in the belly and a small camera.

What was lost, now is found! Thanks to all the guys at Georgia Jets Club who dedicated their time and found my plane. I can't remember who all I talked to this weekend, but Joe Hill And Scott thank you for all your help. The 15 is dead, but at least you found her. Thank you again.
