At about 2 AM, June 11, 1943 a B-24 Liberator heavy bomber crashed between the towns of Weed and Mount Shasta, California about 8 miles north of where we live. The bomber was on a night navigation training mission out of Salinas, CA army air force base, with a crew of 10 aboard. The cause of the crash was the failure of two engines on the the same wing. Four of the crew bailed out and survived. The other six lost their lives in the crash and subsequent fire. The site of the crash can still be visited and small pieces of debris found. Several of us have been involved in producing and installing an exhibit about the crash at the Sisson Museum near the town of Mount Shasta, CA. The exhibit is dedicated to the memory of the young men who gave their lives in service to their country. The photo above shows the size and configuration of this famous World War II aircraft.
