    Default Wellington X3220 lost on July 16th 1941

    Hi all
    Wellington X3220 (BL-H) of 40 Squadron crashed returning from a raid on Hamburg on the 16th July 1941.
    Does anyone have any pictures showing this aircraft?
    The crash site was excavated in 1984, does anyone have pictures or more information on what was recovered?
    I require some info to help me finish an article I have been working on about a pre war accident in London.
    Many thanks in advance
    Gerry

    Hi Gerry:

    I was a member of the team from the Flixton Air Museum who recovered wreckage from X3220 1981-84. By a rather bizarre coincidence, last night I did a slide-show for a farm vehicle group in Norfolk and one of those present now owns the site, while another worked on the same farm for 50 years, and operated the JCB during our visits.
    I wish digital cameras had been around then, as I would have taken many hundreds of pictures. As it is, I have quite a few photos, and if you'd like to PM me, I'll scan those that interest you and send.
    What is your interest in this particular crash/recovery ?
