Mill hill liberator b-24j 42-52003

This site on mill hill is the final resting place of b-24j 42-52003 which crashed here on the 10th Oct 1944 .
The planes remains as can be seen a very large and spread over quite a distance !.
Both undercarriage units remain on site and 3 of the engines of what remains of them !.
This picture shows one engine the most complete of the units and the large wing section lying very close to the pennine way only about 50 mtrs away on the left !
A very good site to visit is "peak wreck hunters" set up by mick and Sean lots of good details more than me on here!.
