Drone Footage of B-47 Bomber Crash Site on Emmigrant Peak
You may have heard the story but few have seen the site. Tragically, a crew of four lost their lives in 1962 on a training mission. The bomber crashed on Emmigrant Peak south of Chico.
There's a memorial at the Chico cemetery remembering the four men who were lost that night. It's a fascinating and tragic story. The bomber was based in Texas but was on a training mission to Montana that night.
Devin Shively shared this incredible footage on YouTube and had this to write about the hike:
Getting to this crash site is very difficult. Hiking the steep, rugged terrain is matched only by the incredible views once you reach the crash site. Both are sure to take your breath away. This was our second time hiking up to this location, each time lead by our friend and local resident, Bryan Wells.
