    Default Many many thanks

    With extremely hard work from Davew and John, with extremely grateful thanks, the spot where this aircraft crashed has been identified.
    Can hardly beleive the coincidence - it is in an area I used to go horse riding in my young days and the land owned by a distant relation. The horses would always avoid this area when riding them in the field.
