Here’s an article: … .DTL&tsp=1

They have found a door to an airplane, but it isn’t of the same material Fossett’s door was made of.


There is all kinds of stuff out there and one wonders how it got there. It would be interesting to see if the door is from one of the many undiscovered missing aircraft.

Our first two searches discovered everything from old cans to car oil filters.

I am confident they have the same information about the aircraft as we have and once a piece of debris is found, it should be faily easy to determine if it is from the aircraft he was flying.

I guess our gues is as good as anyone else’s so far.

Backpacking through some areas there can be quite hazardous in itself and I hope they are being as safe as they can.
