Lost Airplane Retrieval Guide

By: Greg Bowles

Currently our field is surrounded by corn stalks that are over 7 ft. high. Venturing into the corn field to retrieve your lost aircraft can be extremely dangerous. Temperatures inside the crops can be 20 degrees higher than the ambient temperature. Before venturing into the corn field please take the time to read the "Aircraft Retrieval Guide. It may save your life!
