I believe this happened in August or September of 1999. I remember reading about it in the NPS Morning Report. The pilot ejected but do to high winds was dragged to death by his parachute. A week or so later a helicopter came out there to remove the portion of the wreckage that you found. The winds were so severe that the helicopter pilot had to drop his load. So the wreckage you found was not at the actual crash site. I've seen the wreckage when I worked there. I'm surprised they finally got out there and got the rest of it.
