In early 2022, Arundel Museum will be running an exhibition dedicated to the American Liberator Bomber which crashed on the outskirts of Arundel.
On Thursday 22nd June 1944, the Liberator bomber belonging to bomb squadron 489 flew from its base in Halesworth Suffolk along with 42 other aircraft of the US 2nd Bomb division.
Their target was an airfield and Luftwaffe signal depot at St. Cyr near Versailles to the southwest of Paris. As the plane approached the target it was hit hard by flak.
The aircraft crashed at Park Farm, Arundel at 20:15 hours on 22nd June 1944 with the loss of three of the crew. Park farm is on the Norfolk Estate just off the A27 and close to the Trout Farm.
