Hi Steven,

Of course, the one thing we haven't really considered is whether
or not any barn would still be there after 50 years in the
elements. Remember what happened to the set of "Giant" out in
Marfa? Granted, well made structures do last longer in a dry
climate (possibly longer without greedy tourists taking pieces
of it). Still, someone could have simply torn the darn thing
down!

All things considered, it's probably a mute point whether or not
barns are present in the area of the crash site today. What
matters (depending on the validity of the cameraman) is if there
were any barns nearby in 1947! We may never know...

Later,

Roger Evans
