Gloster Meteor Remains on Bennachie

In Autumn of 99 Dog Breath and myself went for a search round the hill of Bennachie near Aberdeen to see if any debris remained of a Meteor which crashed in bad weather in 1952. Sadly the single occupant of the plane was killed. Unfortunately I could find little of the plane remaining, I believe much of it was cleared by the Forestry Commission.

My foot resting on a piece of debris, unmistakably a fragment of the ill fated Meteor. 
Dogbreath sits beside a cairn embedded with small parts of the aircraft.
