2010 AvAr Project: Glendo A-20 Havoc 

Project Title: Glendo A-20 Crash Site (AvAr File #1002-CS) Mission: The teamís mission is to identify and record any artifacts remaining as well as the limits of the debris field. Included in this process will be photographs, AvAr reports, and an inventory of all artifacts identified and or collected. History; On Wednesday, June 13, 1945, at approximately 10:05 hours MWT (mountain war time), Flying Officer Charles E. Lewis, was ferrying Douglas A-20K, serial number 44-586, from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Great Falls, Montana, when the aircraft impacted terrain during a failed emergency landing attempt. The aircraft was destroyed and the pilot was mortally wounded. While this particular model of aircraft was not uncommon, the fact that it was being delivered to Russia, via the Alaska/Canada route, makes it a truly unique find; very few of these lend-lease aircraft, whether going to Britain or Russia, crashed south of the Canadian border.
