The Firefly is AS.6 WB378 which spun in on approach to Eglinton 3/12/44 -no identity is given for the unknown Corsair. For reference December 1982 FlyPast
page 27 gives some good pictures of all three wrecks.

David, I'm assuming you meant to type 54 rather than 44 in the date :) Thanks for identifying it.

Yes, go out from the runway over the water and you can see the wings of the firefly?
