There is 1 message in this section.

Dave Earl from Manchester.UK. Posted 29 Oct 2004.
I am an aviation historian researching flying accidents on and around the Scottish Isles. Can anyone recall a YB-40 (B-17)Flying Fortress bomber on a ferry flight from Goose Bay, Newfoundland, force landing at Brenish on the west coast of Lewis on 7th May 1943. All the American crew were OK and a concrete road was built to recover the plane.
Any recollections and/or photos would be very much appreciated.
