The Fourth Expedition (2015)
One day early in the New Year (2015) a hunter told us of wreckage he had seen up in the North Branch of the Temple Valley. Over Christmas hed been up on the ridge to the west of Ram Hill scanning the area for Chamois and Tahr with binoculars. In a distant crevice high up in the permanent snow he saw what appeared to be aircraft wreckage.
With time running out he wasnt able to investigate further, so we made plans to check it out for ourselves.
The 10th February 2015 dawned bright and sunny, so, with everything loaded up, soon after 10 am our convoy was on its way south to the Central Lakes.
After we'd settled into camp we made an expedition up into the Temple Valley. We not only scoured the area on foot, we flew our Drone over the area too. It was a really dangerous area to climb into, but we did it without losing any gear (or limbs!)
After covering the suspected area thoroughly we found nothing suspicious at all.
So, it was back to the drawing board, and our original search plan.
We flew the Drone around much of the bush areas and peered down through the canopy, but it was completely unsuccessful for grid searching as its really difficult to peer through the bush canopy!
The Second Expedition was February and March 2010
