... the initial finding of just one wing some way from the lake I guess...
Very similar image in my memory (as albion's foto) of a flap or wing part I came across, off the trail below Ottoway Lake back in '79 or so, on a backpack around the Clark range.

Finally some facts emerge. Was that where the Diamond Back Diner was originally located until it moved to downtown Sonora?

Back in 79/80 we used to go to a nice sandwich shop/cafe/diner either there or nearby, and that's why I checked google maps for the match - which shocked me for being so unmistakable. The place we used to go had a cheap salad bar (like $3 for one pass) where we would use celery and carrot sticks to extend the size of the plate "cantilever style" so we could pile on much more on to the small plate provided. I'm sure we can figure out what that place was called BITD.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and venture "Mike's BITD - All You Can Eat Salad (More or Less)".

It was so easy that even the cops could get to it and had it all locked up by the time of our arrival. I guess nobody is going to be paying their kids way through college on this one.

First wrong WHO.

As for the when one would have to go back in time before it was called Mikes. The name had three numbers at the end.

So many riddles and nothing about the food.

As for the all you eat salad to the right very close.

Not my 'foto'.

I have never set foot on the American continent.

I'm just a student of this thread.

If you bother to read it all, or have just kept up with it since it started, you'll know that all the photos and answers are here. You just have to look hard enough.

Pizza/Salad bar/whatever business started up with 'airplane' proceeds eh?

A few other businesses too I'll bet.

Just spent two days reading this. Firstly, the reader is drawn in by an alluring story about drugs, the FBI, murder, climber hitting the jackpot. The plot seems to thicken as more and more details emerge about the plane crash and the events leading up to it. The reader starts off hating the character Sidmo, but as time goes on the reader realizes that this whole thread is a big pot of steaming sh#t. The author clearly is interested at first, but gets caught up in the details and soon loses interest in his project. This book has been in the works for what like 8 years? Don't give me that sh#t about how you have to research to get everything right blah blah blah. The solution is bloody simple! End the f*#king book! End it! Enddddddddd it! You have clearly reached a road block with conflicting information and you need to add that in and leave it up to the reader. Maybe it was sabotage maybe not but you will never f*#king know because the plane is chopped up into a thousand pieces. I should have known when you said you were an engineer that this would never come to fruition... You could write this book 100 times and still not be happy because you're a perfectionist. Give it a f*#king rest.

Sidmo, sorry for hating you in my mind at first, I now see you were probably the most accurate all along in regards to this book never getting finished. This is seriously f*#ked. What the f*#k!

Seventeen months after an American-registered DC9 airliner was busted with 5.5 tons of cocaine, a major international scandal is brewing over a second drug trafficking incident in Mexico’s Yucatan involving an American-registered jet owned by a dummy front company ofthe kind usually associated with the CIA.

absolutely move on to bigger and better and more recent crashes

example

a Florida registered Gulfstream II jet aircraft # N987SA crash landed on
September 24, 2007 after it ran out of fuel over Mexico's Yucatan
Peninsula it had a cargo of almost 4 tons of cocaine on board now
documents have turned up on both sides of the Atlantic that link this
Cocaine Smuggling Gulfstream II jet aircraft # N987SA that crashed in
Mexico to the CIA who used it on at least 3 rendition flights from Europe
to Guantanamo Bay between 2003 to 2005.


The men flying the plane disappeared into the jungle – including one woman,
the CIA refuses to comment, and the mainstream press don’t want to touch
the story.

vaguely remembered that story. googled it and got a laugh

New Scientific Discovery Links Drug Planes to Quarks

Mexican authorities and the American DEA have apparently
concluded that Mankind’s knowledge of the ownership of
large commercial and business jets busted carrying multi-ton
loads of narcotics is governed, like the understanding of
the movement of subatomic quarks,
by Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle.

The more influential the listed owner of the plane is,
the more uncertain the identification becomes!
