USAAF C-54 D 45-543 on Stake House Fell

The C-54 had crashed onto the steep slope of the fell, some metres above the hollow where the remains of the aircraft were broken up and dumped. The aircraft had been carrying some cargo as part of its duties in the Berlin Airlift. This included engines due to be returned to the USA for major overhaul, and some medical supplies. Searching the impact site, I found this fragment of a 1940s four ounce bottle.
