The first one Rusty is the Wooden wonder...  Built by out of collar furniture makers and cabinet makers.

It was the very first truly stealth aircraft...   Fast, effective and could take loadsa punishment of the buggers could catch up with it  :Shocked: :Shocked:

Researching family history I found these photos of the  plane in which my mother in law's first husband was shot down over Denmark.

Yes.  Everything ties in with the squadron records, the planes ID letters,  the date and, of course, the name.  He is buried in Fourfelt Military  cemetery in Copenhagen.
It must be  rare to find a photo of the aftermath considering most went down on enemy territory.

Not to mention most where smashed to smithereens and burned beyond recognition.   My Cousin 'Asa Watson' after whom I am named was killed whilst they practicing low level bombing runs over the reservoirs not too far from here.  The pilot left it a little late pulling up.   
His body was returned for a military funeral at Moorside Church Oldham.  Before the funeral his father (Billy Watson) greatly upset all the family, especially Asa's, mother my Aunt Lucy, by insisting that the coffin be opened for what he called 'Last Respects'.  Everyone then gazed at the carbon statue of what had once been a loved family member.   
My point being that, as you say, there ain't usually much left <sigh>
