LOUISVILLE, Ga. -- Searchers combing Jefferson County in recent weeks have found much of the wreckage of the two F-16 fighter jets that crashed last month.
Two larger objects, however, have eluded them -- a pilot’s ejection seat and a windshield canopy.
“Keep in mind that these items may be disfigured from the crash,” an Air Force spokesman said. “If you find anything you believe may be aircraft wreckage, please call 911 and relay the description and location of the items.”
