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.
