  • This map shows how the Centre of the NOTAM zone was at 53.43N, 1.75W – a point just next to the reservoir.

  • This point will most likely have been determined from the crew’s GPS locators – built into their suits.

  • However, the search teams were sent to Howden Moor – about 3-4 miles away – why? (It is not accessible by road).

  • Note that the airman, smelling of aviation fuel was met on the A57 by Jonathan Daggenhart. This was a distance of about 4 – 5 miles along the reservoir road, as shown in blue on the map. He could’ve comfortably jogged this distance in 1 hour.
  • (Added by Andrew Johnson after chatting with Max Burns – Daggenhart’s Location shown incorrectly on other maps)
