This thread was started on Mon May 30, 2005. 5 plus years ago. I have started a new thread entitled yosemite plane crash of 76 and recovery operations under the California message forum. I am fascinated reading through all of these accounts, and believe I can pull this writting project off. I am providing a percentage of any royalties earned to people who can provide credible information, like I can tell some of the folks on this board have. I am not trying to step on toes, but like they said in Wall Street 1, Is there anything more valuable than information? especially inside information. I am willing to pay royalites to folks who have such information.

I am an attorney in Las Vegas, so I can answer questions re: statute of limitations, as well as develop an attorney client relationship with anybody who could potentially provide information. I think that there may be more information out there, but I do not believe that the story is not ready to be told. The hypothesis are there, information is there, photos seem to exist, all there for the purpose of testing hypothesis. Chapter about Dorn? How about a book about Dorn? the fact is that this story, I believe does not need real names, although that could be helpful. I do not think that unless he was personally involved in the initial or subsequent recoveries, he is relevant. A couple of hypothesis
1. Black book may exist, but unless the pilots were conspirators in the operation, why would the people behind the smuggling ring make the pilots privy to any information they did not need? Further the liklihood of paper surviving a wreakage submerged for 6 months in water seems at best unlikely. If this book does exist it is likely a pilot log, semi relevant, but not a smoking gun. I think this issue has little relevance, and may be a bit of a red herring.
2. The plane was likely flown somewhere around its mile limit of 990 miles. I also believe the flight originated in Mexico. It ran oout of gas, as there does not seem to much evidence of a burn, except by those who were in on the recovery.
Subject needs revived.

I'm still here. Six years later and a ton of information. Some of it is bogus. I research every lead I get and I've been on some pretty wild goose chases. Stay tuned

Thanks, I didn't expect to hear from ya. Any (realistic) ETA on the final product? I'm definitely interested after reading this thread. I read Off the Wall and don't remember that incident report so I'll have to go look again.

Drscott1970 now realizes that the plane crash that he knows about is not the one I'm working on
