Crash Photos

Wendover Army Air Base experienced a number of aircraft accidents during the war. We have a selection of crash images that emphasize the hazards present even at a training base such as ours. Most of the incidents reflect our primary workload of training heavy bombers and feature B-17 Flying Fortress and B-24 Liberators.
