Pic of the Day 7th July Plane Crash 1947

During the 1947 TdF a l'Equipe press plane crashed on the Tourmalet. You've probably seen pictures of the plane off the side of the road with the TdF racing past, but the plane actually crashed onto the road, and it was up to the spectators to clear the wreckage before Brambilla came racing past, just thirty seconds later.

Hope that's just coolant, rather than aviation fuel, on the road!
