Revisit to Wellington DV455
In my previous post I put the crash much further down the lane but it has been found by the entrance to the Farm of Tyddyn Watcyn that the bomber crashed through the hedge ,the area is quite easy to see as a much thinner patch of growth marks the site !
The field also saw the crash of vampire XK584 T.11 on the 24th of April 1961 after the pilot lost control in a spin during a flight from R.A.F.Valley but this incident ended well with both crew bailing successfully and only the plane was lost !
