BELOW: A view of the airframe showing the well-made Land Rover track wending its way over the hills in the background.

 

This 4x4 track passes very close to the wreckage and makes for easy access to the crash sites of both the Hawker Audax and the Miles Master aircraft about 1km away. The road also passes within easy climbing distance of Meluncart.
