The Photo

"This photo is from one of those old Max Spielman paper positives,  It's one I took with my Brownie 127 at  Turnhouse*."

The Occasion

"When I took this photo, Turnhouse was open to the public.  It may have been a 'Battle of Britain Day', possibly around 1954."

The Aircraft

"The aircraft is a Boeing B29.  I think it eventually settled into the grass over the weekend and had to be dug out."
