Loggers in coastal Oregon have found the wreckage of a World War II-era Navy aircraft that investigators believe may have human remains inside.
Investigators reported seeing a wing, tail section, landing gear and other mangled debris spread out over 200 yards in a heavily wooded area in Tillamook County in northwestern Oregon.
Oregon State Police bomb technicians checked the site Wednesday afternoon and found no obvious signs of unexploded ordnance.
The Curtiss SB2C Helldiver, a carrier-based dive bomber used in World War II, was discovered March 18 by a logging company working in the area.
The two-seat, single-engine plane crashed within 20 miles of Naval Air Station Tillamook, which was decommissioned in 1948, but the air station of origin has not been determined.
