The Big Square A drops in on Thanet














Sixty six years ago the Palm Bay housing estate at Cliftonville was fields and on October 4th 1943 an unexpected vistor dropped in. The visitor was a B17F bomber of the 94th bomb group of the United States Airforce which made a crash landing on the clifftop and into the fields. I do apologise for the weak image. However,the coastline of Botany Bay and Botany Road can be clearly seen . I have also attached some information from the Margate Historical Society archive for further reading and reference.
