    B.S.A.A Lancastrian Star Dust

    One of my Christmas presents was the book Star dust Falling which covers the story of this aircraft which disappeared without trace in 1947. It finally reappeared in 2000 on Mount Tupungato in the Andes mountains, having now read the book I watched the Horizon documentary about it on Youtube. Only part of one of it`s engines was found, the rest probably still to be uncovered by the melting glacier, does anyone know if any more wreckage has become visible since the original discovery?...........Martin

    I recall seeing the tail wheel at Duxford. I'm not 100% certain it was from Star Dust but fairly sure.

        The tail wheel at duxford was from an Avro York that crashed in 1944 carrying Air Chief Marshall Sir Trafford Leigh-Mallory.

          Have a look at the dreaded Wikipedia. Additional wreckage has been found and also human remains. It would seem that most of those on board have been identified using DNA.
