Remembering the North Barrule Air Crash, 23 April 1945

Weeks before the end of WW2, an American B-17 Flying Fortress crashed into the side of North Barrule, resulting in the Isle of Man's most devastating aviation accident. This short film follows Mike Corlett, who was at the crash in 1945, on his journey to raise the flag and remember 31 American servicemen on the 76th anniversary of their death. "The men of Flying Fortress B-17G 43-38856 will not be forgotten."
