These are always so sad – life compacted to a few bits of metal and plastic. As always, your work makes me think
Is there really a spot where you can leave bits of the plane that you find? I guess I hadn’t stopped to realize it.
Most of the wreckage was cleared at the time by salvage crews and apparently the rest by a local scrap dealer.
I regret to say in my younger days, I thoughtlessly removed a tiny piece from a crash site in the Cairngorms. I’d never do that now though.
Not the only one. Years ago I took a chunk of a shell found on a Somme battlefield. Wished I hadn’t, don’t know why I picked it up in the first place. An urge to somehow ‘own’ something of the past, I suppose.
I’m afraid that I am gulity of the same kind of deeds, collected as a teenager, although the items I have are now on display in a local museum.
Find it amazing that these items are still around after all these years, interesting shot.
Missed this one ….thought provoking… am off up tomorrow having a look myself , will definately leave anything I find .
