                  The following photographs have been sent to me by Martin Terlaak, a friend in Germany who visited the crash site of Lancaster ED627. One photograph shows the bridge carrying the A6 Autobahn and it was at this point that the 4000lb "cookie" bomb carried by ED627 was found. The wreckage of ED627 was scattered over one kilometre and although the fuselage and crew bodies were found in close proximity the main wreckage was probably removed by the Luftwaffe. Another photo shows a barn that was probably there before the war and a search of it by Martin found no traces of aircraft pieces although it seemed to contain various pre-war farm implements.
