Aircraft Wreck Hikes to Accident Crash Sites. Piper PA-24 Comanche, Piper PA-28-180 Cherokee, Mooney M20, Beechcraft K-35 Bonanza. G. Pat Macha, Aviation Historian and Archeologist. Type video camera used: Kodak Zi8 Pocket. Bruce Guberman Other info: The www.aircraftwrecks.com team is working to create a database of all crash sites within the State of California. This project includes a history of each accident, a site description with location, and a photographic record. At this time there is no complete list or record of all crash sites within California, nor is there a complete list of aircraft still missing and unaccounted for. Aviation accident histories will provide a safety benefit to pilots by learning from the mistakes of others. State and Federal agencies have crash sites on their respective lands for which they have scant data or records or no data at all, and this is true of private property owners as well. Military crash sites where fatalities occurred receive special attention and are included in the Project Remembrance section. Finally, this project is all volunteer. G. Pat Macha, Project Coordinator, and Aviation Accident Historian
