Twenty five years have now passed since an RAF Shackleton aircraft crashed near Northton in South Harris with the loss of ten service personnel on board.
The plane hit Maodal, a hill in Northton on April 30th 1990.
The aircraft, based at RAF Lossiemouth, had been taking part in a military exercise called ‘Exercise Brushfire’.
The tragedy shocked the local community and a service of remembrance was held in the Leverburgh Free Church attended by hundreds of people shortly afterwards.
A memorial on the top of Maodal commemorates the crew of the Shackelton “Dylan” and details of the aircraft with the words “We Will Never Forget” inscribed on a plaque.
