The remnants of an iconic US World War II piston-engined aircraft have been recovered from a field in Co Monaghan.

The twin-engined P38 Lightning aircraft crashed near Castleblayney on 17 December 1942.

Fascinating. Great for the pupils to learn about this history. However, I'm very surprised that they were allowed to dig the site alongside the archaeologists!

The JCB looked a bit heavy handed, but I don't know the circumstances.
I was amazed at the number of planes lost in and around Ireland on that list.
