Stockport air disaster site and memorial

The site of the Stockport air disaster is marked by a memorial plaque close to the place where the aircraft hit the ground.

The wording reads: 'In memory of the seventy two passengers and crew who lost their lives in the Stockport Air Disaster 4th June 1967'. For a description and background to the crash, read 'The Day the Sky Fell Down' by local author Stephen R Morrin. A new development has been proposed for the site but in early 2008 has not yet appeared.
