This must be one of the most commemorated crashes ever. There is the memorial in the churchyard at Hamnavoe (not Burravoe) together with what I imagine is a temporary cross. There is also a propellor set up at the Old Haa at Burravoe.

There is also a memorial erected at the actual site of the crash. A picture of which can be seen in the Shetland Museum & Archives picture library by following this link:

This 9 foot high Celtic cross was erected in September 1991 by members of the island community.
