Sappho: Some equipment from Prowler wreckage recovered

U.S. Navy search and rescue officials have recovered some equipment from the wreckage of the EA-6B Prowler that crashed in a remote wilderness area six miles south of Klahowya Campground last week.

Olympic National Forest spokesman Ken Eldredge said Wednesday that Navy investigators have visited the crash site, but major pieces of debris have yet to be removed.

Navy officials still have to decide if the wreckage will be airlifted from the crash site.

“If they decide to use a helicopter — and I think they will — weather will play a major factor,”‘ Eldredge said. “They will begin a salvage operation as soon as possible.”

In the meantime, the crash area remains closed to the public.
