Aviation Photo #1565102 Vickers Wellington Mk1C - UK - Air Force

Largely intact, the tail section is the most recognisable remains of this Wellington bomber which crashed near Ben Tirran, Angus, 67 years ago, killing four of the five crew members on board. The Wellington’s geodetic design, developed by Barnes Wallis, can clearly be seen in this shot, and despite the ravages of time, is still in remarkable condition. The crash site, one of many littering the Scottish mountains, serves as a memorial to those who died in the accident.

A fitting memorial to fallen RAF airmen of WWII. Nicely seen.

67 years has passed and the body still looks good, no corrosion.
