The crash site was well within the Morongo Indian tribal land, so if some chief or shaman was somehow consulted, well...???

Blackbird?

The article mentions use of a reconnaissance plane to take IR photos of search areas.. is this what you meant by bizarre? I didn't know the SR71 was used for SAR..

Closer to a shaman actually.

The aircraft crashed in deep snow and basically disintegrated. It snowed even more afterwards so what wreckage and ground disturbance was there was later covered. That's why they were having a difficult time locating it.

Came across a couple of recent pieces about the Phantom.

Found this tribute video of JASDF retiring Phantoms from 302 Squadron as they transition to F-35s.

The Aviationist also had this video of slow-mo night ops at Hyakuri Air Base.

It's a timeless airframe, the P-47 of the jet world, badass, rugged, can get in the dirt when needed. I crewed 16s but always had an afinity for that jet and those that crewed her and flew her. They definitely brought the heat and the hate.
