Item #: 27189
In August 1944 a B 24 Liberator crashed in Freckleton, killing over 50 people including children at the village school.
You can see all there graves in the cemetery
Wonder if that was the plane that developed a fault whilst flying over Wigan, it was circling very low around the town for quite a while burning off fuel before it could land safely at Manchester, anyone else remember that.
The terrible tragedy of 1944 will not be forgotten. The village is next door to the BAC runway at Warton and low flying aircraft are unfortunatly common

If this UFO is an aircraft, it was probably made by Airfix. The blurriness is not typical motion blur, so it is probably a lot closer to the camera that anything else in the photo. The background is quite sharp.
