Photo Comment

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.
