WWII aircraft were found on the coast of England after 76 years

Debi Hartley and Graham Holden found the World War II aircraft buried on a beach in England.

Debi Hartley, a 51-year-old warehouse supervisor and colleague, Graham Holden, a 54-year-old truck driver, were delivering their dog, Bonnie, Monday on a beach in the city of Cleethorpes when they saw the plane.

The couple initially did not realize what the debris was, and spent 45 minutes exploring and taking photos before identifying them, Hartley told CNN.

After they returned home to begin researching it, they found the aircraft dated back to World War II.

The British Royal Air Force Museum (RAF) in the United Kingdom confirmed to CNN that they believed the plane was Bristol Beaufighter TF.X, with the serial number JM333, from 254 RAF Squadrons.

Ian Thirsk, head of the RAF Museum collection, said in a statement to CNN that the plane crashed on April 21, 1944 immediately after taking off from the nearest North Coates in Lincolnshire after both engines failed.

“The crew was not injured and fled to safety,” Thirsk added.

Speaking to CNN, Hartley said he was surprised to find “extraordinary” ruins, given that he and his colleague had walked on a stretch of beach many times before.

“(I) have never seen anything like this before in my life,” he said.

“We took the dog for a walk as usual and suddenly we saw these ruins,” he added. “That’s an extraordinary find.”

“My partner has lived in Cleethorpes for 30 years and he goes the same way (all the time) and has never found it before.”

He said that before the unique discovery he was “not interested in history at all” but now he wants to find out more about those who fly planes.

However, due to the danger posed by unexpected tides on Cleethopes beach, people have been warned not to look for debris.

Write on Facebook Thursday, Cleethorpes Coastguard said: “We know there will be a lot of interest, but we have to ensure everyone’s safety, so we ask people not to visit the site because it is not safe to do so.

“We have also received reports that sand is now covered again.”

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
