Our displays are changed on a regular basis and the information collated on the Halifax Bomber Crash at Fitful Head has now been archived.
Our current display is of models of commercial and passenger vehicles, covering the last 70 years or so, and include a few of local interest. Most of the models are from Custodian George Jacobson’s personal collection. The display is enhanced with photos taken by Mr Jacobson which complement the collection.
In 2012 we told the story of the Halifax bomber which crashed into Fitful Head in 1942 with the loss of all 7 crew. The photos depicted here are of local men who were caain sheep on Fitful some days after the crash and sadly came across the remains of some of the airmen.
You can now read all the interesting information we have collated regarding the mission of Halifax R.9438 TL-H of 35 Squadron Linton-on-Ouse, when you come to visit us at the Mill.
