1965 Folsom Lake Plane Crash Update


    Google+    

By: El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office

Jan. 21, 2014 - The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office recently conducted a multi-day search on Folsom Lake attempting to locate the remains of persons lost in a tragic plane crash in 1965. Some of the most technologically advanced underwater robotic and sonar equipment available to us was utilized.

Although some interesting areas were identified, none of the captured images could be confirmed to actually hold signs of the crash and no divers were sent into the water by the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office due to the sites being inaccessible at this time. The lake has near zero visibility and very heavy concentrations of silt. It also contains numerous dangerous underwater obstructions such as standing 50-60 foot tall oak trees.

No additional search operations are planned within the County of El Dorado at this time and relatives of those involved in the crash are in support of this decision.
