It's March 18th, 2010, Rockaway Beach, Oregon. Unusually sunny and clear for a spring morning on the Oregon Coast, a couple of loggers high up on a rocky, dirt road off of peterson creek are working in a clearcut. To harvest some timber they head into a heavy forest and walking through the dewy, wet foliage they come across, some metal. Hundreds of pieces of it scattered all over. Over about a 200 yard area in these woods were ripped apart pieces from what looked like an aircraft. A piece of a wing here, cockpit controls over there, a small part of fuselage with an old, white star logo painted on military green and patches from a leather bomber jacket. They didn't find a body though, and this raised alot of questions. Like where did it come from? Why did it crash? What happened to and more importantly who was the pilot? To find the answers, we need to go back about 70 years to World War 2, in the Pacific Northwest. This PNWcast, episode 19.
