I originally found GT0634 on November 22, 2003.
Found it at 16:00, 15 November 2008 as described and in good condition. The hangar is no longer in use, but remains as a prominent piece of the landscape and area history.
Published NAD83 coordinates were located about 122 feet south-southeasterly of the found 2008 WGS84 coordinates. 2003 WGS84 coordinates are located about 47 feet northeasterly of the found 2008 WGS84 coordinates. 2008 WGS84 coordinates for the mark found by 2.5 minute occupation with 5 strong satellites and 1 WAAS satellite. (Proximity to the hangar made satellite lock difficult.)
