I Saw The Marker

The marker can be seen in front of the Hiller Aviation museum in San Carlos, California.
Not realizing that this website excists I didn't take a picture of the whole marker. By the way the marker is a huge rock. I did however take pictures of all the engraved parts, the crew, the passengers, the airplane and the sponsor.
