Lieutenant Commander Ron Richardson's son Alistair and grandson Philip (Who is also a Royal Navy pilot) have tracked down his crashed aircraft.
The family of a wartime pilot who vanished on a bombing raid have solved the 74-year mystery of what happened to him after discovering the wreckage of his plane.
The remains of Lieutenant Commander Ron Richardson's Hellcat fighter bomber have lain almost perfectly preserved in snow and ice 3,000ft up a mountain since 1944.
His wife Shelia and son Alistair, who his father only met as a baby for just one day, have spent a lifetime wondering what happened to their loved one.
The 27-year-old pilot was listed as missing presumed killed after he failed to return from a daring bombing assault on the fearsome German battleship Tirpitz in a Norwegian fjord.
Two years ago Mr Richardson's grandson Philip, a Royal Navy commander, stumbled upon footage on social media of the discovery of a crashed Hellcat plane on a mountainside in Norway.
