Since 1999 the site has been covered and uncovered by sand on many occasions, often with just a lone propeller sticking out of the sand. During the winter of 2015/2016 the site was uncovered yet again but this time wreckage appeared on the foreshore as it is now evident the wings are breaking up. At first I was unaware where the wreckage was coming from until I became aware of the crash site. As soon as it became clear the wreckage was from the B17 I informed the Receiver of Wrecks and declared the items I found.
Since then I have been out to the sites a few times just taking photographs and building up a library of images. I am waiting on a decision on the items I have picked up off the shoreline and hopefully they should go into a museum locally.
For those interested here are some of the photographs taken of the site and some of the finds on the shoreline and inter tidal zone.
