Supermarine Seafire at Glenlatterach Reservoir

In July 02 Michael Cowie and myself went in search of the crash site of a Seafire near Elgin. We'd been kindly given directions by Brian McCudden who wrote in to the Website. I was very keen to check it out as the aircraft concerned was basically a Navy adaptation of the Spitfire. After a small hunt around we located the impact site but sadly, as can be seen, very little remains. Our visit was almost exactly 54 years from the day of the crash as the plane came down in July 1948. Michael spends much of his free time visiting the many Stone Circle remains which pepper the North East of Scotland so this trip to a site more recent made a bit of a change for him. 

If you want to visit this wreck please contact Mr Ed Gormanly Tel: 01343 890316 as the wreck lies within Kellas shooting estate.

An unimpressed Michael Cowie examines the few remains, definitely not a stone circle!

See the Big Picture!

 

Myself in the middle of the crash site, behind the Glenlatterach Reservoir can clearly be seen.

One last shot as we leave the scene.
