Modern Air Crashes in the Scottish Mountains

Although the current military and civilian policy with regard to aircraft crashes is to remove all trace of the wreckage, regardless of the remoteness or inaccessibility of the location (presumably because of environmental and security concerns, and to investigate the causes of the accident), here is a list of recent crashes (since 1970) at remote locations in the Scottish mountains (and elsewhere).
