Miles Master on Cairn of Finglenny

Finally, after a few years dormancy, Flash and myself decided to hit the hills again and find some more wreck sites. On a particularly successful day in January 06 managed three wrecks in a 13 mile walk, this was the first one encountered. The Miles Master came down 9th October 1941 during a navigation exercise from nearby Montrose Aerodrome.

Flash examines the first piece of wreckage we find, the V12 engine of the Master lying some distance from the rest of the wreckage.

See the Big Picture!

A Kodak moment, myself posing on the engine for that "must have" snap!

The remains of the propeller lies beside the engine, at the top of the picture the wooden stub of the sheared blade can clearly be seen.
