Lockheed Lightning 42-13345 Plynlimon Mt

Lockheed Lightning 42-13345 of the 27nd photographic recon unit crashed high on Plynlimon on 11/09/1945 with the loss of pilot Lt Xenophon Eugenides , the aircraft struck the ridge line in the background and lost it's props momentum then carried it on until it fell on to the opposite slope !
On this revisit for me ! with Sean Mick and Al of Peak wreck hunters I was saddened to see the wholesale wrecking that has gone on at this site in recent times ! I hope they get who did this and they are held responsible for this vandalism and theft !

There is a substantial reward for any information leading to recovery of stolen items and prosecutions!!
