Avalanche two saved by propeller of crashed plane
Two climbers caught in an avalanche on a Wester Ross peak were saved when they hit the propeller of a Lancaster bomber which had crashed on the mountain 58 years ago.
Ian Parnell and Jon Winter were roped together climbing Beinn Eighe, Torridon, in December when the avalanche was triggered, sending both men hurtling down the mountain.
Mr Parnell, 40, of Sheffield, hit the plane’s propeller, stopping their fall.
