Miss Piggy

For all you aviation enthusiasts out there, if you have ever been interested in crash sites then this is one that you might have heard of. In 1979 a C-46 Commando went down in Churchill after an engine failure caused a forced landing. The plane was set down just shy of the runway being unable […]
