Hiking into history

Last year on Sept. 29, Clem Bingham and I set out on an adventure to relocate a military mystery. From previous research, this lone aircraft was assumed to have been removed from this site back in 1941. As the story reads: On Oct. 24, 1941, 19 P-40 aircraft were on a training mission over California. Lieutenant John H. Pease was the first of five to develop engine problems and forced to bail out. He survived and his bird was forgotten, lost to the importance of WWII.
