Aviation archaeological research is an on-going process and no fewer than four additional WWII crashes on Skye have come to light via the Internet. They are:

Unconfirmed data suggests that the Spitfire crashed on Beinn Nan Cuthean near the "Big House", north west Skye. The crash location itself is a mystery, so if anyone has any information on this or any other crash site we'd be very pleased to hear from them.

Serving with No. 8 OTU (Operational Training Unit) at RAF Dyce, the pilot who was killed is named as J.E.Mosley, tag number 1467449. This aircraft held the "Presentation Spitfire" name `SHERWOOD FORESTER`. The Presentation Spitfire scheme appealed directly to the patriotism of commercial companies, wealthy families, communities and any other groups of people who could stump up 5,000 or so to pay for the construction of what was undoubtedly the RAF's sexiest fighter. The true cost was around 12,000.
