Recovered from the bed of the famous Loch Ness in Scotland. On New Year's eve in 1940, this Wellington was caught in a snow storm and one engine cut. The captain saved all but one of the crew - sadly the rear gunner's parachute failed to open and he was killed. The aircraft, used during the first bombing raid on Germany in 1939, was recovered from the lake in September 1985.
