Hi Chris, thanks for your recent visits and comments. It is an unusual story. It was the recommended practice though to bale out and hope the aircraft didn;t crash on a town in these circumstances. Most crews didn’t, and tried to put down in low cloud often crashing and killing all on board in the process. I think that bad weather at Exeter prevented them landing there.
Yeah I figured they had been re-buried again!
Thanks Bill, good to see you here. Yes, being over Britain an aircraft pointed east or west will over the sea within minutes.
Thanks for the visit and the feedback John. Pleased you like it. I wanted it to be easy to navigate around.
Thanks Dave. No, I was surprised when I read that too.
Hi Nick, glad you like these pages. Let me know if you need any grid refs. These hills have lots of crash sites, is possible to take in half a dozen or more in a day’s walk in some places.
