Active duty military life can be hard with frequent moves to new duty stations around the world. In 2005, I lucked out and received orders to Virginia. It was then that I was introduced to the hobby of metal detecting.

David enjoys reading about US History and loves to spend time conducting research. He is an avid Civil War enthusiast and loves to visit the battlefields around his home in Virginia.

Crashed Heinkel He 177 bomber pin-pointed by the X-TERRA 305

Recently I was asked to field test the X-TERRA 305 metal detector and it was this detector that pin pointed exactly where the Heinkel had come to earth 67 years before. Truly a case of today’s sophisticated technology hunting for the then sophisticated technology of some seven decades previous.
