Meet report Walk 7 November 2021

10 people set out in clear but windy weather with forecast of a dry day. Four aircraft crash sites were visited. A Heyford bomber which crashed in 1937, a Hampden bomber dating from 1942, an Oxford trainer which crashed in 1945 and an American Thunderbolt fighter which came down in 1943.
The very strong NW wind made for hard going at times and created a need to keep moving which limited the extend we could linger at the crash sites. Despite this we achieved what we intended and hopefully people gained some knowledge of the human stories behind the crashes.
Thanks very much for your company everyone and for a really good day
