BELOW: Aluminum skinning.

 

The yellow paint indicates that this Anson was a training aircraft. Apart from being more visible in the air, the yellow paint made it easier to see on the ground, either in snow or in natural coloured moorland, if the aircraft crashed.

 

This and other small pieces of debris lie by the burn below the engine.
