Tutor: Mill Cottages
Originally uploaded by seansonofbig2
Here's the alleged touchdown area for the Avro Tutor which went on to crash into the trees in the background of the shot. Or be deliberately and skilfully arrested by them, depending on whether you believe the pilot's account or not.
We found no definitive sign of the event, but we did bump into some present day occupants of the mill where the road-mender witness quoted in Peakland Air Crashes lived. This mill can be glimpsed behind the trees. It seems unlikely that any road-menders (other than perhaps Sir Robert McAlpine) live there now. Gentrification, eh?
Location: TBA when we find evidence
