Bristol Beaufort Bomber on the Hill of Wirren

This site was visited in early winter 99 just before the first snows. The weather was pretty foul, however the photos don't quite capture the strength of the wind that day. This was the second site visited that day the first being the B24 Liberator. The plane came down in 1942 with the death of both crewmen. At least another three planes are reputed to have come down on this one hill, if anyone knows where they are drop me a line!

Flash and Dogbreath stand beside the remains of one of the wings.

See the Big Picture!

Myself grubbing around in the impact crater, the original paint still evident after 57 years!

Live ammunition can still be found strewn around the site, pictured here is a 303 bullet with a silver painted tip, tracer round maybe?
