    Default Spitfire I, L1096

    Hi Phil,
    I have L1096, 6FPP, Speke, 1645hrs, Cat C, Prestwick to Llandow.
    Overshot, landed down wind, ground looped to avoid over-running boundary. 'T' was in process of being moved.
    U/C collapsed. Pilot not to blame. 1st Officer JE O'Halloran, ATA (USA)
    Don't ask me what 'T' was.
    Roy
