Heading out for three days next week to Mine Wash. I was hoping to visit the military jet crash site in the area. I can't find the website that described the location. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance Scooter

I haven't been to the crash site, but the Lindsay book says this about it: From the Mine Wash turnoff (mile 79.5 on SR78), travel 1.6 miles to the Mine Wash Indian Village Site. "Another plane crash site is up on the hill east of the road." It says "another," because the previous section says that "a short 1 to 1.5 mile hike south from Stag Cove leads to an old airplane crash site. Half a buried engine is in the wash with scattered pieces of the plan strewn about." If no one else here has info, you should contact Dennis, who runs this site: https://www.facebook.com/bfpartyline/ His other hobby is hiking to plane crash sites. He told me that between he and his hiking partner, they had been to over 1,000 crash sites in the West. He will likely have lots of info.

The crash site is further up the road on the left up on a hillside. It is not hard to get to, you can probably see it on GE but I have not checked. I have not been to the Stag Cove one yet.

If I remember it correctly, there wasn't much of anything big, lots of little stuff strewn all over the hillside. Little Blair has stuff in several locations.
