NOT Boeing Flying Fortress B-17E 41-9098, Westland Lysander Mk.III T1655, or Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IIA P7295


Not Fortress: Bwylch Maen Gwynedd

This scar in Bwylch Maen Gwynedd was close to the coordinates given in "High Ground Wrecks", for three 'planes (Boeing Flying Fortress B-17E 41-9098, Westland Lysander Mk.III T1655, and Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IIA P7295), and looked pretty convincing from a distance.

Close up however, not a trace of metal. It's hard to crash a 16 tonne 'plane into the ground and not leave a scrap of aluminium.

We know this isn't it, but we think this might be what HGW have marked as the Fortress crash site.
