The Army Air Corp undoubtedly did some cleanup. They would have gathered the bodies of the crew, any armament, the radios, and the bombsite (top secret at the time). I would guess it was easiest to get that stuff by toting out the mashed up fuselage. The wings, engines, and landing gear would not have been classified enough to warrant cleanup.inluvwac wrote:Can anyone tell me exactly why the main part of the plane is buried? Or is it?
