WB518 stored in Griffith ahead of being mounted on a pole in the main street. It was taken down from the pole in 1991 and forward fuselage and centre section used to repair VH-HMW/WD828 which had crashed. The damaged parts from -HMW were patched and fitted to the rest of WB518, which was then returned to the pole. Repairs on -HMW were done in the US and it became N518WB. The owner considers the aircraft to be WB518, not WD828.

This photo in the Netherlands national archives seems to have been commissioned by the Dutch navy for some reason, but appears to have been taken in Britain. VT413 was brand new at the given date and the groundcrew are in civilian clothes. It ended as a Firefly U9 target drone in Malta and was shot down by a Supermarine Scimitar in 1961.

Despite having endured over 60 years of the vagaries of the Scottish weather, the Royal Navy titles, serial and deck code are still clearly visible on the yellow fuselage sections of Firefly T1 Z2018 which crashed here in 1949. Mysteriously, these large pieces of wreckage lie a considerable distance from the natural cascade line of the main impact point. It is worth remembering that most aircraft wreck sites in Scotland serve as memorials to the aircrew who lost their lives in these flying accidents.

The wings are the most recognisable pieces of wreckage of this Royal Navy Firefly T1 which crashed in bad weather on the North-facing slope of Cuidhe Crom on 16 May, 1949. The aircraft, from 766 Squadron, had been flying out of RNAS Fulmar (Lossiemouth) on that fateful day. Both crew members were killed in the accident. The wreckage can be seen from several kilometres away due to the yellow training paint scheme which, remarkably, is still much in evidence over 60 years later.
