Put your WWII helmet on and go cut some. Then get your watch out and time it.

If it's hot out, not very long.

Kind of a funny looking pattern in the corn though...unless people were in there tramping it down.

Fuel leaking could have killed things quickly.

No wonder it crashed. It ain't got no wings!

The Picture is obviously photoshoped.

No debris field, no fire, and too small of an impact area.

We need to form an organization, pressing the government for action, pronto!

I have recovered several crashed airplanes, and never seen one slide less than a hundred feet. Certainly looks odd.

Well it hasn't been "hot" here. 70's and 80's. I have a corn field behind my property. The stalks they cut during the de-tasseling process took a couple of weeks to turn completly brown.

Takeoff is optional, landing is mandatory.

I'm guessing that the area shown is where the plane did it's last "bounce", I would be curious to see the area around this spot.

Takeoffs were fine. Dad said: "Put it down as close to the line as you can."

I popped it over the blast fence and stopped the airplane behind the line. I gathered I wasn't supposed to do that....something about a PSA jet behind us.....

I marked it off to non specific instructions.....but that was the end of my touch and gos...
