My dad recently got back from a trip to Hawaii (Oahu) and he came across something interesting...there was a crew working on recovering parts of a DC-10 that had crashed, and he said it was near a WWII airfield called Dillingham? I asked him if maybe it was a KC
-10, but he insisted it was a civil aircraft, though no livery was recognizable. He said he could see the engines with no fan blade damage wing spar, and tail cone, and parts of the fuselage. Since it was near the beach, he figured it was a water landing.
He was a 36-year UA
mechanic, and worked on DC-10's in SFO
during that time, so if he says the parts of the wreckage was from that of a DC-10, I'll take his word for it. He was amazed the engines were still there, as they are usually the first parts of a crash that are taken away. He thought it was recent, as none of the wreckage was corroded by the salt water.
Does anyone have info. on this? I tried doing a search on the site, but came up with nothing, and www.airdisasters.com wasn't online.
And the winner for best actress is....REESE WITHERSPOON for 'Walk the Line'!!!!!!!!
