These photographs illustrate how difficult it can be for search and
rescue teams to spot wreckage from the air in the dense forests
surrounding Payson. Above, look carefully and you can see the
previously uncharted wreck discovered near Chevelon Canyon by the
Civil Air Patrol while searching for a missing small plane that
crashed on New Year's Eve. Below, the fatal Dec. 31 crash is
spotted a half-mile from the unrecorded wreck.
