The two maps below, provided as a
courtesy by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, provide a general orientation into the bomber's
flight over Pennsylvania and the location of the ditching, sinking and presumed burial
site of the B-25 in the Monongahela River. As companion guide to the maps, the
Summary of Circumstances (SOC) from the accident investigation report is provided.
The Summary of Circumstances is one of several elements contained in the Accident
Investigation Report. The purpose of the SOC was to provide an "executive
overview" of the B-25 incident to the officers who formed the Accident Investigation
Board. The SOC is presented for the readers review in the original format.
Marginal notes and calculations that you see on the pages of the document are from
researchers who have reviewed the SOC.
