Five months ago I though I’d found a plane wreck while looking over some aerial photography of the area surrounding Kenilworth, Utah. I made the hike up the steep and rugged mountainside only to find out that the “airplane” was just a boulder. This week, I once again found what I think may be the crashed airplane, visible in the center of this Google Maps image. Here’s a comparison of the aerial imagery of the two sites in question:
The second one looks much more promising to me, especially considering the “whiteness” of the object pictured. There are no boulders visible anywhere nearby that are that bright, unlike the first location. I’ve got tomorrow off work, so I think I’ll drive up there sometime and hike up the mountain. It should be a short hike, only 1/4-mile from the road, but there’s 700′ of elevation gain and I’m sure that will translate into a lot of zig-zagging. Hopefully there are no bears up there.

Yes I thought a plane was up there but I’m not quite sure as to its location. Well I figure 1300 feet in a easterly direction from kenilworth proper. Then turn north and go 100 to 500 feet.
