Wreck in Albania

Wreck in Albania

Postby Blackbird on Sun 24 Dec 2017, 6:30 pm

I saw this very sorry looking T-33 on my recent trip to Albania. The story goes that it was forced to land after straying (twice) into Albanian airspace 60 years ago on 23 December 1957.

As well as being virtually unprotected, it's location makes it very difficult to get even a half decent photo - but hopefully of some interest.

Seasons greetings to all UKARians,
