Nine club members (David, Betty, Philip, Simon, Rob L, Barry, Amanda, Elaine & Bob T) participated in this short but in part steep and rugged walk.

The aircraft was an Avro Anson which crashed into the south side of the lower part of Pigeon House Mountain on 9 September 1943 killing all three crew members.

What remains of the aircraft is a large number of door sized sheets of aluminium, various other metal parts and the two engines with bent propellers.

More details on the aircraft and why it crashed can be found in the report on the first club walk (June 2014).
