Video report of expedition R207RRC

A fragment of the Hamilton aircraft has survived up to today at the crash site. There is a memorial sign in the form of a propeller blade (from IL-18 airplane) near it.
A plate with an explanatory inscription is attached to the blade. The memorial sign was made and installed in 2016 by Viktor Korotkov (local hunter). He learned about this story from a literary almanac and found American pilots' place of death.

Commemorative sign at the site of the deaths of the pilot Karl Benjamin Eilsen and his flight mechanic Earl Borland.

Dear Victor,
Thank you for the data concerning AS-207
The activation of AS-207 as R207RRC is approved/validated for IOTA credit.
The operation was very tough... the RRC team made a lot of IOTA chasers very happy. Your signals in the western US were very strong and the ops were excellent.
 
All the best to the team and continued success to the RRC.
 
Best 73,
