In 1960, seventeen year olds Penn Stohr and Dick Hughes snuck up into the nose of a B-25 as it went on a retardant run down on the Salmon River and not very far downriver from North Fork, Idaho. This B-25 happened to be N9088Z now known as Sandbar Mitchell. Dick brought along his 8mm Brownie camera to records his stowaway activity.
