Hunters in the Hopkins Unit of the Ocala Wildlife Management area should be in the lookout for parts from the crashed military jet which landed in the area a few months back. Specifically they should keep an eye out for fan blades and other parts which have not been found and may prove important to determining the cause of the crash.
So for anyone who thinks it would be cool to have these parts for keepsakes or conversation pieces remember that the military needs to understand why this Harrier crashed and what can be done to avoid another crash in the future. DO NOT keep the jet parts!!
The U.S. Marine Corps is asking hunters in the Hopkins Unit of the Ocala Wildlife Management Area to keep an eye out for parts of a Harrier jet that crashed in the Ocala National Forest last month.
The missing parts are an engine hub and fan blades, according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission news release.
