There has been lots of activity here lately and some groups are charging money to vist this site and dig for items. More photos to come very soon.
It seems some of the good items have escaped the ebay plunders grasp at the YB-49 site. I found this engine blade about 4 inches in the ground last spring.
It has minor damage but appears to have been burnt.
These two bolts still have the safety wire intact. There are lots of these kind of items if you take the time to search the area.
