Lockheed Ventura AE699

Lockheed Ventura AE699 Exhaust Manifold
Ventura?
Originally uploaded by wreckhunter

This looks like an exhaust manifold to me, though we understand the engines from this site were "recovered" a while back. We see with a spot of research that "The engines were removed in 1984 for the "Snowdonia Historic Aviation Group",without the landowners permission. The last large-ish piece of skinning was removed in 1996 by a collector/wreckologist from Cheshire."link.

There are still however fair sized bits scattered all the way down the Cwm from SH 65979 62473. It's rough ground for a 100% recovery.

Location: SH 66000 62282
