Can't help seeing all attention Lake Mead drying up is garnering, all the interesting things found on the bottom. Something I'm wondering about, is the Lake Mead B-29 bomber visible from the surface yet? I've tried to search it but cannot find anything but with the water level down over 100 ft I would think it might be visible by now. 🤔

I believe it is still ~100 ft below the surface

Was this plane one of the special Atomic bomb B 29 Squadron that had no guns on them?

it was a "F-13 reconnaissance platform and performing atmospheric research" when it crashed

1948 B-29 crash Lake Mead

has anyone seen anything listed as far as GPS coordinates of the crash location - should be able to see shadows of it on Google Earth or similar? shruggy

Quote
At 9:51 a.m. July 21, 1948, a B-29 Superfortress, weighing in at 104,556 pounds, took off from China Lake, California. It traveled to a test area near Lake Mead to conduct high-altitude atmospheric research. After the last measurements were taken, the pilot took the plane a little lower. Both the pilot and co-pilot thought they were around 400 feet above the lake’s surface, but the altimeter was reportedly off. Around 12:30 p.m. traveling at 230 miles per hour, the B-29 struck the water and sank to the bottom of Lake Mead where it still lies today.

Lake Meade down 100’ there’s still a lot of water there with that plane being 100’ below surface.
I was born August a year later.

A B25-C bomber crashed in Lake Greenwood, SC on D-Day during a training exercize because the pilot dipped a wing to look at a bathing beauty and a wing struck the water. It was raised in 1983 and I saw it when I moved down there in 1984. Anyone could walk right up to it so we went up close and checked it out!

The funny thing about science is that if you change one miniscule parameter you change the entire outcome to the way you want it.

This was a B52 crash with 2 Nukes on it, back in the day.

they are reporting 4 sets of remains found since May 1, 2022

& today

The coroner’s office on Tuesday said that the partial skeletal remains that were discovered Aug. 6 near the Boulder Beach area were located in the same area as the partial remains that were found on July 25.

As this time, the coroner said, “the investigation into these remains includes working to determine whether the two sets of remains are from the same person or not.”

Do they ever say with out a shadow of a doubt what the remains were kept in? were they sunk inside barrels(steel/Wood with Cement) and then just now are coming to the surface because the water level? why wouldn't the barrel rust/fall apart and the said body rises to surface? I know lots of questions. I just cant wrap my head around all of a sudden the bodies are showing up. with the big craze of deep see diving and such nobody has ever run across this stuff? its just weird to me.

Sorry for the dumb questions


Thank you

By the time the barrel would have rusted out the body would have decomposed to the point it won;t float anymore.

That makes sense, i think. but also you would have fish food as well so it would be just a skeleton. I can understand that.

i wonder if they are going to try and solve who these people are?

thanks for the info

Doubt it gets any priority, since the water level is of such major concern.

What is the nexus between the water level and a coroner performing their job?

Maybe this is a blessing in disguise, no water-electricity for califonication and it will run dry too.

They, the local Las Vegas and Nevada State coroners have solved who some of them were, one lady drown back in the 1970s I think, and they are working on the others now, scope
I have cousins that move up to Las Vegas from SO CA in the mid 1950s, some of them worked in the casino a long time ago before Las Vegas got so big, I remember hearing that if you stole anything from the casino you would be found buried in a shallow grave out in the Desert not to far from town shock
I was also told that the human bodies legs and arms will end up sticking straight out of the ground after in a couple of days, faster in the summer puke down
