The B29 Superfortress, nicknamed Over Exposed as a tribute to its photo-reconnaissance work during the war, crashed at Higher Shelf Stones in Glossop on November 3 1948.

All 13 members of the aircraft’s crew were killed in the disaster, and its wreckage was scattered across the moors. The crew was just seven minutes away from their landing site when they crashed.
