    About a 2 hours drive from where I live is a DC-3 near Punta Gorda, FL out in a swamp. Below is a pic of it when it was spotted. When I looked at it on Google Earth, it doesn't appear to be on anyone's property.
    Is there a way that I can find out if it is on State owned land, or private? Any suggestions to see who it belongs to and on who's property would be welcomed. I'm interested in seeing the wreckage in Person on the ground.

    If you have an address and the location is in Charlotte County, then you can try searching the property tax records site:

    Cool find, best of luck!

    Candidates:

    Serial: N130D
    c/n: 19800
    Owner and notes: Wreck at Punta Gorda, Florida. Regisered to Gary Quigg, Crawfordsville, Indiana.

    From :
    Oldprops DC3 USA Census

    There's another one in Punta Gorda:
    Serial: N7500A
    c/n: 11693
    Owner and notes: Wreck at Punta Gorda-Shell Creek Airpark, Florida.

    But as this is described as being on an 'Airpark' I guess it's on an airfield or something. Might be wrong, but I don't know the area.
