    Hi Phil,
    W9240 is the one.

    Do you have any details on the pilot Sgt. Lindley eg full Name, number and age.
    It is a facinating story of daring do by the farmers who rescued him.
    They ran to the a/c on fire, picked up the tail while one crawled under and pulled him free, only the pilots boots were burned, slight burn to right arm of chap who crawled under to get him out. just as they cleared the a/c the fuel tanks exploded.
