Texas International Airlines flight 655 left El Dorado, AR in a Corvair 600
(similar to above)
and crashed into Blackfork Mountain on Sept. 27th, 1973. Please see
page for details.
The crash site is located at 34°42'640"N,
An excellent YouTube video on the crash site is below.
Below is a topo map of the Blackfork Mountain Trail with the
location of the crash site.
Please note the legend at the bottom. Once you leave the
actual trail, it is a very rugged
bushwack down to the crash site. I would highly recommend
only attempting this in the
late fall,winter, or early spring. Otherwise, the poison ivy
is thick, and the bugs are brutal.
Also, take a GPS. The coordinates are included in the
