Title

Aircraft crash aftermath

Description

Two photographs, the first is of fire fighting the burning wreckage, damaged buildings in background. From information kindly supplied by the donor, 'Attempts to put out the fire after the bomb load expired after the crash on take-off. The crash took place on the night of July 5th 1944'.
The second shows two airmen collecting pieces of wreckage. From information kindly supplied by donor, 'These two fellows are busy gathering up the pieces from the plane after the bomb load exploded. I don't remember the crash as I was rendered unconscious and was found on the wing. I have often wondered how I ended up on the wing. The cockpit might have split open when the plane hit the ground.'
