Barracuda MD963 Redbrook Clough

Barracuda MD963 crashed on the 29/07/45 in Redbrook Clough, with the loss of the pilot Sub-Lt G.H.Ambler .
The site overlooks the A62 and is a short walk from the road by the pub ,there is more here than i was expecting the collection at the cross is all the larger parts but many small bits lie around the path !.

Some of the smaller bits i uncovered .

Red paint still on the remains of P-51D 'Sunny VIII' which crashed on Castleshaw moor by Delph on the 29/05/45 with the loss of the pilot 1st Lt H.H.Fredericks .
