Aircraft: Bristol Blenheim P4848 on Beninner

 

 

This Page Contains:

  • Additional Wreckage Photos / Part 2.

 


 

 

BELOW (next 10 photos) : Remains of one of the engines. Assuming I counted right, there was 10 cylinder heads visible in the area including the two still attached to the engine. The Bristol Mercury had 9 cylinders, so at least one cylinder head must be off the second engine.

 

The remaining engine is more than half buried, so there may be more cylinders still attached to that but buried out of sight. [Gary]

BELOW: There were 5 cylinders exposed on this engine. Two cylinders were still attached and 3 more were lying next to it, probably having fallen off after the steel cylinders corroded away.

 

Assuming the other four cylinders are buried under the engine then the four in the other wreckage pit and the isolated one to the south are off the second missing engine.

Scenic and Return Route Photos

 

 

BELOW (next 5 photos) : A few shots of the scenery.

 

It took me 1 hour from the B729 to the firetower but only 20 minutes from the firetower back to the B729, so I now know I will have time to reach the Spitfire. [Gary]
