    Interesting indeed. Its nice to have a little bit more history from Resolution and the recovery operations.

    BCPA Flight 304 Another site with some history of the crash and the recovery that took place.

    Wow!



    Some of the wreckage is still there, visible from Resolution trail. But you need a guide to point it out to you.

    Thanks!

    To find the wreckage, keep an eye on the downhill side of the trail, roughly around the midpoint on Resolution Trail between the junctions with Fir Trail and with El Corte de Madera Creek Trail.

    Wow, what a story. So I wonder if Fir and/or Tafoni from Skyline are the trails they bulldozed to get to the wreckage?

    I don't think we're talking about a "stay on designated trails" kind of scenario exactly in order to see that, if that thing is indeed still at Skeggs today...
