Not sure if you are aware of the American Air Museum in Britain, they had some aerial shots. www.americanairmuseum.com/place/103

The RAF Museum at Hendon, if I recall they have an enquiries email address.

My interest interest in Culmhead is the adjacent bombing range on Tricky Warren. There appears to be a small direction arrow at ST 20158 15020 (National Grid Ref) and the target was somewhere around ST 19926 15236. The arrow only appears for a short while (see photos in the link below) and is gone by 1946.

EDIT: Beaten to it by a few minutes!!

This link is to a series of aerial photos of the airfield via Historic England and covering various dates

You have to download them to see the full sized version.

Preumably you will be aware of the survey undertaken by Paul Francis, of this AIrfield Research Group in 1997 and the updated report from 2001

www.somersetheritage.org.uk/downloads/publications/Culmhead.pdf

and subsequently the report produced by Hazel Riley in 2015

blackdownhillsaonb.org.uk/wp-content/upl...mhead-hep-lowres.pdf

There is also a topic in the members area here

netcompsys,

I have just downloaded the reports on Culmhead and they are great. I know that there are more reports in the membership area to download (and I have) but you seem to post up more than are currently available on the website. Is there a secret 'stash' of them somewhere or am i just unaware of how to access them?

No I have no access to any secret stash or any other source more than any member might have on our website and forum.

I just had a quick Google to find those....

Difficult to know what info you already have about the crash, although from discussions elsewhere that you are having you must be talking about Hurricane Z2913
