    Default Identify wheel from bomber aircraft

    https://www.lancaster-ed559.co.uk/wheel.html

    Might be a bit of a long shot, but I am trying to identify from which aircraft this wheel is from. It's located in the Scottish Highlands and was thought to have been used post-war by the Forestry Commission.

    Afraid not. The boot is a size 12.

    If that's the one in Glen Feshie it's believed to be from a Halifax.

    Knowing the location of the crash site would be a start.

    It's not a crash site. Wheel is thought to have been used by the Forestry Commission post war so could have come from anywhere.
