Observations and Notes

Dana Site #29 arrow is located approximately 1 mile north of Hwy 30 (Lincoln Hwy) on public land.  The area is flat and covered with scrub brush.  The dirt road to get out to the arrow did take a little time to locate, and the gate to go thru blends in really well with the fence.  Once we got thru we then had to use our gps coordinates to locate the arrow, as there are several dirt roads that go in different directions.

The remains of the arrow are in very poor condition.  The base where the generator shed stood only consists of several concrete strips that run in-line with the arrow itself.  It was not possible to measure the base, as there was no outside perimeter to get a good measurement on its original size. The remainder of the arrow has multiple breaks, and measures just a little over 42 feet in length.  You can still make out the arrow point, even though it is completely broken apart in small pieces.

The pilot would approach the tail of the arrow on a compass heading of 90° (East), and then exit the arrow on a compass heading of 75° (E-NE) .
(All measurements and compass headings are approximate).
