Visitors to the vineyard always want to hear the details of the story of how Norm began finding airplane parts as he plowed to prepare the vineyard for planting. They are fascinated when we tell them we found the dog tag from one of the Navy pilots after the Witch Fire in 2007. We are gratified with the care, reverence and thoroughness of the Navy Stricken Aircraft Program Manager and his contractors in their surveying and reporting of the incident.

The picture shows the memorial plaque we will install and dedicate at the crash site on November 11, 2010. The entire story can be read on the News page of our web site.
Proudly honoring our military,
Elaine (and Norm)
