Fairey Swordfish P4223

B-Team outing: Me and Barry returned once again to Holme Moss, and finally found the FAA Swordfish, with a bit of assistance from High Peak Bob. It's changed a bit since the last pic I've seen on the web, acquiring a cross with a White Ensign on. We found it at Fairey Swordfish P4223

Handley-Page Halifax HR727

We went up onto Kinder yesterday for the RAF Halifax and Wellington above Edale. Found Halifax despite poor visibility and rain,but not the Wellington as we thought at the time. The wreck sites are only about 400 ft apart, and it has since been suggested to us that all of the wreckage shown in these photos is actually of the Halifax. We have investigated, and have since revisited the site,locating the Wellington wreckage.
