Further afield

We decided to look a little further afield this week, visiting parts of Wales outside the Snowdonia National Park for a change.

We were not disappointed by the wreckage on Foel Wen/Mynydd Tarw of Blenheim L4873, though time and the elements has turned what was a fairly complete wing section into a scatter of big scraps of aluminium skinning in the main.

We planned quite a short walk to allow us to search quite widely for the nearby Flying Fortress 41-9098, which we had heard was hard to find from the Doylerush/High Ground Wreck grid reference.

We found it 670m from these coordinates, in a different valley entirely. We also found what we think was the scar on the hillside which caused these author's confusion.

Hey, you are crazy! Keep this up, you are clearly finding stuff others just talk about!
