The Bromborough Ju88 Incident model

In October 2010, Northern Forties collaborated with New Ferry Regeneration Action Group, the Bromborough Historic Society, the Hooton Park Trust, and Fort Perch Rock Museum at New Brighton to organise an exhibition to commemorate the shooting down of a Ju88 German bomber on 8th October 1940 by a squadron of Hurricanes flown by Czech pilots from Speke Airport. The Luftwaffe bomber crash-landed by the side of the River Mersey, close to the entrance to Bromborough Dock.

A joint exhibition was held at Bromborough Library and subsequently at Fort Perch Rock using the wartime Luftwaffe pilot collection owned by New Ferry resident/Northern Forties member Mark Anthony Craig, and a scale model commissioned and now owned by Mr Craig. The model was constructed by fellow Northern Forties member Phil Allen who lives in Chester.  Phil's hobby is model making.

A commemorative e-book, written by Colin Schroeder from the Hooton Park Trust as part of the event and edited by Mark Anthony Craig, is available here for you to read and download.
