More on the Lost Growler

This blog remembers a fallen aviator who wrote well, and flew better, but today's post also remembers the three fallen comrades in the field near Harrington.  Have a read and remember they left families behind.

Harrington, Washington, Aircraft Accident Magnet?

A sad event happened yesterday, March 11, 2013.  A Navy EA-6B Prowler crashed on a training flight, killing all three of the crew.  The odd thing here, to me, is its location.  Harrington, Washington.  You can see what the news has to say on it.

I'll have to pull up a few of my reports and do some further checking, but off the top of my head, I think Harrington has been the location of at least a few crashes now.  An F-84, and I believe there were a couple WWII aircraft that fell from the sky near there.  Here is a link to my article on the F-84.

I'll be following this up, soon, but Harrington must be on training routes the world over!  Does anyone else know anything about other wrecks near Harrington?
