About Aerospace Archaeology

Aerospace Archaeology

Hello, Thanks for visiting. Much occurred in the aerospace industry since the Wright brothers first flight in 1903. I hope to preserve the aerospace industry’s rich history. Almost everything you see on my site is research I’ve done over the years.

Aerospace Archaeology is a discipline based on one of the greatest inventions of last century, the aerospace industry. Focus of research may consist of old wrecked or missing aircraft, abandoned air fields, old airway beacons, missiles, drones, the space program, experimental aircraft, and the men and women associated with the aerospace industry. Other terms people use for similar intrests include aviation archaeology, aircraft archaeology, airplane archaeology, wreckchasing, wreckology, and crashology (to name a few).

I'm an Arizona native and History major from the University of Arizona. I started a lot of this research during my Freshman year at the University of Arizona and decades later, I'm still at it.

Please contact me for speaking arrangements, class lectures, or surveys of crash sites. Send me an email detailing your event and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

You can also find my work on iTunes. (Oops, my podcasts are down for the moment).


Thanks again,
