This photo was taken the day after the eruption while flying for the US Army. This photo is the KOMO vehicle that was abandoned by one of your newsperson.

Mt St Helen, the day after.

I was a medical helicopter pilot for the US Army. We took part in what they called "The Search" the day after. The National Guard & Reserve took part in the search and rescue on the day of the eruption. More photos are available upon request.

Do you have more photos of Car 5 (the KOMO vehicle) that was left behind by Dave Crockett? I have been documenting the decay of Car 5 in Toutle for the last 10 years, and would love to see more if you've got it.
