Geocache Description:

Pomnik americkemu letci ve Vezkach u Kromerize.
The Monument for the American pilot.

V letnich mesicich roku 1944 utrpeli americti stihaci na moravskem nebi nekolik ztrat. Hned tri stroje typu Mustang musely byt odepsany po souboji z 22. srpna 1944. Tehdy se stretli letci 31. a 52. stihaci skupiny 15. USAAF se dvema skupinami Messerschmittu Bf 109 ze sestavy I./JG 3 "Udet" a II./JG 5 "Eismeer". Behem pruletu nad Zborovicemi v okrese Kromeriz se dva Mustangy srazily, jejich piloti 2/Lt Charles W. Bratton a 2/Lt Sheldon W. Sandler z 309. perute 31. stihaci skupiny se zachranili se stestim na padacich a byli zajati. Treti pilot, 1/Lt James E. Hoffman Jr. z 2. perute 52. stihaci skupiny, jiz tolik stesti nemel. Jeho Mustang P-51D (seriove cislo 44-13431, kodove oznaceni QP-V) byl sestrelen a zritil se u obce Vezky (okr. Kromeriz). Letec zahynul v troskach.
Po valce byl na miste dopadu odhalen americkemu letci pomnik. V tichem, nenapadnem prostredi prezil leta komunisticke moci bez uhony az do dnesnich dnu.
V srpnu 1994 se podarilo po 50 letech vykopat i zbytky americke stihacky.

Pozor pri parkovani automobilu, neni zde moc mista, proto auto parkujte co nejvice na krajnici. Cesta je vcelku prehledna, ale jezdi se tu hodne rychle, radeji parkujte vpravo smerem od Vezek. Prosim o kvalitni maskovani, zvlast po logu v noci. (Please hide carefully.)

Cache je mala, ale vesel se do ni logbook s pravidly, tuzka, spona ke kravate, male plysove prasatko a privesek otvirak.
