Dear Friends,

While talking with a friend in Nevada, he mentioned
that he heard a report of a firball crashing into
the desert near Bullhead City, Nevada. He joked that
I should come look for meteorites there instead of

Unfortunately, all I could find were some fragments
of text about it on the Internet. What I could find

"Sky explosion investigated; airplane blowup ruled
August 7, 2004, Mohave Valley News, Mohave Valley
News, NV

"Fire Marshal Jim Dykens said the reporting party
met with authorities and said they saw what
appeared to an airplane exploding and crashing in
the desert east of the city."

"It was also reported the explosion was followed
by three smaller bursts"

They have searched for plane wreckage and found
none. If they were looking for plane wreckage, not
meteorites, they have very well overlooked anything
that was out there.

I guess if people wanted some more specific
information, they could contact the Fire Marshal
named above.
