A-7E Corsair II California Desert Crash Site

On July 11, 1984 a Navy A-7E, BuNo 157500 attached to VA-27 Attack Squadron crashed while en route to China Lake NAWS. The crash occurred 47 miles NE of the airfield. The aircraft was performing low level awareness training when the crash occurred. Killed in the accident was LCDR John Kenneth Bussey Jr., age 38.

  I  was told about this site by a friend who had come across it while out hiking. I was hoping it was a F-18D that had crashed in the area that I had been looking for. 
Thanks to Pat Macha for the information about this crash site.
