Thanks to Pat Guthrie for spotting this one!
A World War II Navy aircraft was discovered by loggers on private land near Tillamook, Oregon on March 18, 2010. The aircraft was a Curtis SB2C Helldiver. Officials are still looking into it. The pentagon has been notified. There is little information on it at this point. I intend to look through what I can find to see where this Helldiver came from. It is fascinating that aircraft are still turning up from over 60 years ago. Of course, this is a Navy wreck and they have always been stingy and stiff about their aircraft and ships. Still, this is an interesting discovery and I look forward to more news on this subject!
