Photo of WWII bomber comes full circle

Unique photographs of a World War II bomber plane which crash-landed near Douglas in 1945, have gone on display in the Island.

The Manx Aviation and Military Museum bought four images of the wrecked Fairey Barracuda, in an online auction.

The torpedo bomber caught fire on a training flight from Ronaldsway in August 1945 - two crew bailed out, but the pilot crash-landed the aircraft just inland from Marine Drive.

The photos have just gone on display at the museum - the same building where they were printed 70 years ago.

More than 300 planes crashed on Manx soil during the war years, but museum director Ivor Ramsden says the blazing plane would have been an alarming sight.
