Heavy Bomber Lancaster WU 21 at Tontouta, New-Caledonia - Early 60's

On 26 January 1962 a French Navy Lancaster WU 21 pranged on landing at Wallis Island in the South Pacific. Apparently it suffered severe fluid loss from the hydraulic system which meant only partial flap went down and no brake pressure. The runway was wet and the aircraft over-ran the airstrip until the right wheel hit a ditch beyond the end of the runway causing the right landing gear to collapse. The aircraft was considered a write off and it was left to rot at Wallis for 20 years. The French transported the remains by ship to France where it has been partially restored by Ailes Anciennes le Bourget.
