Ah, Bleck Cra, like many a man you’ve been taken in by a good looking girl. Look behind that pretty little face and you’ll find a cold hearted woman with a dark and dangerous past. During WW2 an American B-26 decided to take a closer look at this little stunner. She clipped his wings and sent him hurtling in smithereens down her curvaceous sides. If you want to see the result of this woman’s wrath, cross the stile between Rocky and Chimney Rock, turn left towards the Bloody Bridge River and at the first small quarry turn right to cross Spence’s River and head for the summit. Keep the quarry at your back and from the river to the summit, and especially once you cross the quarry track, you’ll find the debris – an engine, lots of leads and aluminum (no, not a spelling mistake – this is an American plane) and other things I didn’t recognise because I’ve never worked in an aircraft factory. There used to be a plaque, on the rock beside the engine, but it’s gone now – a victim of thieves, just like the Northern Bank. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/178/comment/1441/
