North American P 51-D Mustang 44-72340 / WD-K
Rainforest 1: Wreckhunters 0
We ( Me, Mick, Matt ZX) went over to Aran Fawddwy yesterday with a view to finding a bit of the Mustang whose wreckage was scattered there.
We had the crash report, and the various published coordinates. There were three of us, we had all day to look and we had all found a good few wreck sites.
We found nothing where the crash report map showed wreckage should have been, we found nothing where TR Hill's book described wreckage in a rainforest, and we found nothing where Clark's book reported wreckage, other than incredibly tightly packed trees, festooned with moss.
Crash Report: SH 845 233
Clark et al: SH 841 237
Hill: SH 846 234
We have a report that someone from Chester looted the site back in the early 90's, and that one of their friends has been operating nearby recently.
Anyone know anything?
