In 1971, a forest fire was burning near Norse Lake. A modified Grumman Avenger was dispatched, with a full load of chemical fire retardent, to keep the fire in check. The pilot came in over the fire, tried to release the load, but it didn't happen. Still with a full load, the plane lacked enough lift to pull back out, and crashed, leaving 300 metres of debris in it's glide path. The pilot's life was saved when the plane hit, and the fire retardant put out the forest fire for 100 metres around the plane. We decided to go for a ride, and find that plane! The gpx file is included. My fellow adventurer for this ride, Bill, on his new KLX250... Me, with the bikes, right after we found the trail in. Here's what the plane would have looked like before the crash. It was a modified WWII plane. Though a series of events which involved some vague directions, and a bit of shithouse luck, we found the trail in... The debris started almost right away. Part of a wing. You can still see the rounded dents in the front of it, where it hit the trees, and was subsequently torn off. Continuing along the trail, we found the fuselage, and main wings, still sitting there after a third of a century! A good ride overall, but even better because we accomplished our goal: to find the plane!!
