Being a West Cornwall man, I am unable to contribute any pictures to this thread, but appreciate those who have submitted copy I recognise.
I wonder if anyone remembers an aircraft embedded in a house along Alma Road in 1959/60/61, or perhaps has a photograph of it. Taking the bus from the city centre to Milehouse for Argyle matches, I recall passing this amazing sight, which, so I was lead to believe, occurred during the war.

I was born in 1947 and grew up in Ford, I can't recall what you have described. Could this have been before 1959? Apologies if my memory is wrong.

Thank you very much for your reply deathadder, I don't think my memory is playing tricks either. My first visit to Home Park was in February 1959 and I feel the years I suggested were correct. I am unable to find a report of such an incident on the Internet, but as a 10/11 year old such a sight tends to last forever in the memory.
