About This Site:

I (Alan Clark) started this site back in October 2000 to detail visits that I was making to aircraft crash sites in the Peak District. Since that time it has undergone a number of changes finally becoming the Peak District Air Accident Research website during 2004. The focus of this site is still largely about detailing aircraft crash sites that we have visited, both in the Peak District and the rest of UK, but also includes some of the results of the 1000s of hours of research that we have jointly undertaken. Over time details of some of the joint projects we have undertaken with the Lancashire Aircraft Investigation Team will also appear.

This picture was taken at the crash site of RB-29A 44-61999 "Over Exposed" near Glossop in the Peak District. This was the very first site I visited in February 1999, this photo was taken during a later visit.
