The P38 Lightning aircraft crashed into a stony field near Castleblayney in County Monaghan on December 17, 1942.

The pilot, Second Lieutenant Milo E Rundall, 22, from Iowa, baled out successfully after he got lost on an evening flight from Langford Lodge, on the eastern shores of Lough Neagh in Northern Ireland.
