Armstrong Whitworth Whitley Mk.V Z9189

We found a glob of formerly molten aluminium, and a flake a bit less less heat distorted at the crash site of this Whitley which had a short, unsuccessful flight from the nearby Darley Moor airfield.

The ground here is full of aluminium, and the greenish corrosion which often accompanies it at crash sites.

Pat Cunningham's coordinates were unusually far out here, enough to put you in the wrong field, and on the wrong side of the road. Luckily the urbane Mr. Basile, (owner of the relevant land), happened by on horseback and was able to give a few pointers.

Location:SK 17754 42867
