JUst an additional photo taken on the NNE slopes of Croaghgorm showing some of the wreckage of the aircraft. This appears to be part of the engine block but nat having a clue about such thinks I could be wrong. There was also pieces of fuselage spread around a large area. Presumably storms over the years have blown the lighter fragments of the plane all across the mountain. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/150/comment/2395/
