Поиск самолетов в горах Кетскилс: Ashokan High Point crash site.

Attention! Due to a heavy rain forecast, I am moving hike to the next Sunday, June 23-rd. Привет Бродяги! Продолжаю серию по поиску упавших в Кетскилс самолетов. Описание: Ashokan High Point (3080') is one of the Catskill 100 highest mountains only 500' lower than the 35's. Ashokan High Point Trail is a 9.3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near West Shokan, New York that features a river and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, camping, bird watching, and backpacking and is best used from April until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash. ELEVATION GAIN around 2,175 feet DISTANCE Up to 10 miles. ROUTE TYPE Loop О упавшем самолете, который мы будем искать: This one is pretty easy to find when the leaves are down, about a hundred feet off the loop trail. It's a small, crude, two-man trainer probably from WWII. It's a little tough to spot because of its small size (about that of a Piper Cub) and the color (olive drab and tarnished aluminum with patches of lichen). A note about plane crash sites: Please remember that lives were lost and these sites should be treated with respect for the families affected. As always we will not leave anything nor taking anything away but knowledge of the area and hiking experience. Детали маршрута описаны тут: https://www.challengedhiking.com/2018/06/20/ashokan-high-point-hike-and-map/ Ориентировачная карта маршрута (возможен бушвак!): https://caltopo.com/m/V322 Экипировка: - брюки для хайка полной длины, можно иметь с собой футболку с длинными рукавами, на случай бушвака (напролом, без тропы); - ботинки для хайка - палки - кому нужно - вода - 2-3 литра, еда по вкусу, - кепки / солнечные очки / крем от загара - спрей от клещей/комаров - для одежды и для кожи; Встречаемся на парковке: Kanape Brook Parking Area, 821 Watson Hollow Rd, West Shokan, NY 12494 =================================================== Буду публиковать список уже найденных Бродягами самолетов: 1. Kaaterskill High Peak 1 N[masked] W[masked] Piper PA-32 (aircraft registration number N7146C) was an air taxi cargo flight which actually crashed on June 25th, 1987 wth 2 fatalities. 2. Van Wyck 1 The USAF T-33A training jet (tail number[masked]) was just an hour out of Stewart Airfield on November 1st, 1962 when Lt.Colonel Carl Colson and Captain Russell Johansen perished when they lost control of the aircraft while they were practicing acrobatics during testing. 3. Van Wyck 2 Van Wyck Mountain, midway up summit ridge from Bull Run. Small passenger plane crashed in 1978, plaque at site, wreckage can sometimes be seen from Great Southern Overlook on Peekamoose when leaves down and sun angles just right. 4. Balsam Cap/ Friday The B-25 Mitchell Bomber in the drainage crashed on the evening of March 31st, 1948. Its USAAF tail number is[masked]. It rolled off the assembly line on September 9th, 1944 and saw action over France during WWII before coming back as a trainer. It was flying just such a training mission in 1948 when navigation errors led the crew to believe they were flying over Newburgh preparing to let down at Stewart Airfield, when in fact they had been over Kingston and were headed straight towards Friday mountain (3694'), impacting at 2,700 feet elevation and bursting into flames. The pilot was Captain Richard B. Willis. Two other crew members were aboard and all perished. 5. Stoppel Point 1 N[masked] W[masked] John T. Grace, who perished when the Piper PA-28 he was piloting (N1316T) crashed in foul weather next to the escarpment trail on May 26th, 1983 (Memorial Day weekend). He had taken off from Poughkeepsie at 9:12 A.M., heading for Watertown against the advice of several other pilots. He filed no flight plan and had only a revoked student pilot certificate. He impacted within a few feet of the top of Stoppel Point at 9:40 A.M.
