Boeing RB-29A 44-61999, known as "Overexposed", of the 16th Photographic Reconnaissance Squadron, 91st Reconnaissance Group, 311th Air Division, Strategic Air Command, USAF, crashed at Higher Shelf Stones near Glossop 3rd November 1948.

"Overexposed" was on a routine flight from RAF Scampton to American AFB Burtonwood. It is thought the aircraft crashed whilst descending through cloud.
