Thanet GhostWatch Outdoor Investigation
Saturday 27th April, 2013.
Group: Bryn, Sarah, Sue, Claire, Martin and Bob.
Written by Bob with additions by Claire.
We deliberately chose this for a return visit as
it was the anniversary of the WWII American bomber crash which occurred
here at around dusk on this date in 1944.
We made our way down to the beach via the slope at the Margate end of
Palm Bay and located at the impact site.
Nothing was sensed, unusually the area felt
extremely flat and Sue didn't even pick-up on the woman near the slope
which she had done so in the past.

Sarah reported a burning sensation to the left side of her face.
An EVP session was commenced but later examination of these recordings
revealed nothing unusual.
Just as this session was ending, Sue
picked-up on a three-digit number.
Although not correct, it was extremely close to the Bomber Group number
to which the crashed plane belonged.
Whilst we were here, several distant rumbles were
evident but these could have been from the engines of a large vessel
moored close to the shore.
A distant aircraft was also heard but this turned out to be a modern

Sarah mentioned, that the previous day, she had
been thinking about this location and had sensed the name "Frank".
We left the crash site and headed towards Foreness Point along the
sea-wall promenade (pictured right and photographed earlier).
Again, the whole area seemed inactive and nothing was sensed.
We reached the end of the promenade and headed up the slope, to the
cliff-top, near to the water treatment works, before making our way
back towards Palm Bay.
We located to the large shelter overlooking Palm Bay.
Sarah, who had arrived first, reported that she had just heard two
whistles before being joined by the rest of us and another just after.
These sounds had not been apparent to anyone else in the group.
An EVP session was commenced but later examination of this recording
revealed nothing unusual.
During this session, Sue heard a voice just after it was asked "In what
year were you born?", she wasn't sure if it had been one of the group
but this sound was not evident on the recording.
Sarah reported a tugging sensation on her backpack.
Bryn was closest to her but had both hands firmly in his pockets.
Sue witnessed a small light, on this side of the cliff-top railing,
which moved in an upwards direction, to approximately one foot above
the rail, before disappearing.
The general consensus amongst the sensitives was:
of all the areas this evening, the shelter seemed to be the only one
with some activity, possibly due to the group being out of the bitter
cold and strong winds which may have been blocking anything from being
We left the shelter and continued along the
cliff-top before returning to the cars.
End of investigation.
