Gulf treasure hunters went looking for gold, found lost military plane
From Naples News
They sound like treasure hunters. HammerHead. Fiberglass Bob. Caucasian Tim. And they talk like them, too. The grizzled salts and the young ones, too.
I believe the gold’s out there,” said Jake Wicburg, the 14-year-old son of Capt. Tim (not Caucasian Tim) Wicburg.
And is he going to be the one who finds it ? “Oh yeah,” he says.
The plane’s there and the gold’s there,” the elder Wicburg said. “I’ll be looking for it for the rest of my life.
When a young Timmie Wicburg snagged a piece of an airplane on a fish hook in 1990, he had heard the stories. So had his dad, the late Capt. Jim Wicburg.
