Avro Anson on Ben More Assynt 

We visited this site in April 01 exactly sixty years after the plane came down in April 1941, as can be seen there was still alot of snow at this altitude which covered much of the remains of  the plane. The gun turret has been removed from the site to restore a similar Anson at the Raf Museum at Duxford.  If you visit this site please treat it with respect as the six unfortunate crew are buried next to the crash site beneath the cairn shown in the last photo as it was six weeks before location of the plane was ascertained. 

Myself examining one of the two engines at the site, the propeller clearly protruding from the snow..

See the Big Picture!

Flash holding the prop at the second engine, we were quite surprised at how small the props actually were.

Flash stands upon the tyre and examines the undercarriage.

Flash pays his respects at the cairn where the aircrew are buried less than twenty metres from the crash site.
