This was the opening D-day glider attack on "Pegasus Bridge". Photo is part of this posting:

Based on this photo, I would guess the truck is carrying pontoons.

Re: Photo to ID with wrack a/c

Yes, it is. There is a larger (uncropped) view in this link where the bridge (at the bottom) is more evident (see page 10). Note there is also a pontoon bridge in the page 10 photo (which "may" relate to our previous posts).

There is a Horsa Glider ("mostly" a reconstruction) as part of the museum near the bridge today at this location: 49.243185, -0.271324.

Some more info here:

Here is the capture of the bridge from the movie "The Longest Day".
