    Hello!

    A friend gave me this piece of an lancaster, the info on the piece is that it came from a lancaster that crashed in august -44 after
    a bomb raid on stetin, probably the id of aircraft is Oor Wullie, LL757. The date and place of find makes it at least 99% ocf being this aircraft.

    Can anyone tell me where on the aircraft this piece comes from?

    Hard to say - I've seen drawings that show that type of wing rib construction on the inboard and outboard portion of the wing. maybe some of our friends in the UK could add to this. [​IMG]
