Re: The famous 2N+HN stopped by trees...

Hi John,

Amiens is way off but I think only 1 photo was captioned as "Amiens"?

Regards

Robert

Hi Robert,
This is the photo, and reverse, which references, not Amiens, but the Amiens road - the road to Amiens. I don't know how long that road is, so I cannot add more.






You probably know this photo.
From the photo, it seems clear that the starboard wing leading edge whacked into the side of the tree and then the rest of the Bf 110 somehow swung round to end up with both wheels in the ditch. OR, it has been moved to PUT both wheels in the ditch after the collision in order to make recovery easier. I just don't know, but the tree on the left of the photo had been hit side-on, not front-on from the damage shown on it...
EDIT: Right click on each photo and then select 'view image' to see them in a smaller size that will fit your screen.

Second photo give a rather good view of the surrounding area and countryside.


With this view, can anyone finally provide an exact location for this crash?

2 and 3 pic note that i think it is bus stop. Look at the poles. So must be a secondary road leading to/from Amiens. ( D road secondary road) because of the farmland. And a little town quite nearby

So we go back to my first suggestion: The loss of 27/5/1940 (Bei Avesnes) and the road from Avesnes to Amiens. The A26 didn't exist, hence the E44 via Guise.
The Red/white posts being road markers used to signal the road during snowy weather.

Why if marking road are the poles road behind trees? Notice board.
