Dumfries, United Kingdom, Europe
On the night of 3/4 June 1943, a Wellington bomber (HE 746) was on a flight from RAF Wing near Leighton Buzzard when it suffered a failure to one of its Bristol Hercules engines. The crew advised flying control at RAF Dumfries of their situation and requested an emergency landing; unfortunately the aircraft crashed 1½ miles from the airfield runway. Three of the crew were killed and two others were seriously injured. This aircraft was to become the catalyst for the foundation of the Dumfries and Galloway Aviation Museum.
They have since gathered a collection of various aircraft, including the recovered parts of the Wellington Bomber (HE 746).
If the image is blurry, we are awaiting images from the Museum.
