Republic P-47D Thunderbolt 42-74728

Republic P-47D Thunderbolt 42-74728

Despite previous excavation by enthusiasts, there are still scraps of aluminium to be found amongst the trees alongside the Greenway Hall Golf Club where a pilot-less Thunderbolt hit the ground.

Baling out hadn't helped the pilot in this instance , as he opened his parachute prematurely, and was killed by the sudden deceleration.
