British Midland Canadair C-4 Argonaut G-ALHG
Originally uploaded by seansonofbig2
In 1967, an Argonaut passenger 'plane on its way back from Palma crashed on approach to Manchester Airport, due to engine problems. 72 people died, though amazingly 12 survived, despite the aircraft being spread all over the area in pieces.
Memorials to those who lost their lives, and the emergency crews who saved those who survived were respectively raised here in 1998 and 1992.
