Dog walkers find remains of WWII RAF plane

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Two dog walkers discovered the wreckage of a rare WWII RAF fighter plane that laid buried in the sands of a beach for 76 years.

Debi Hartley, 51, was on a casual walk with her partner Graham Holden, 54, and their dog Bonnie when they made the “one in a million” discovery on Bank Holiday Monday.

The carcass of the fighter craft revealed itself on an undisclosed patch on Cleethorpes beach, Lincolnshire with its wings protruding through the shifting sands.

The couple then spent around an hour scanning the wreckage as they discovered more remnants of the aircraft.

Ammunition has been found in a World War Two aircraft which was discovered on a beach 76 years after it crash landed.

Graham Holden and his partner found the wreckage after shifting sands uncovered the site at Cleethorpes.

A Royal Navy bomb disposal team carried out a controlled explosion to "safely dispose of the items" on Saturday.

My grandfather was responsible for the destruction of at least 10 German airplanes, he was the worse aircraft mechanic the Luftwaffe ever had.
