Does anyone know about the downed plane in the lower righthand corner? Looks like it could possibly be a Dakota aircraft that crashed between those trees... not sure though

The crashed plane in the lower right is what is left of a CG-4A glider.

Since the Glider Pilot Regiment didn't use the CG-4A in Normandy these can't be RAF Dakotas.
