    Default Wellington MkX LN281 memorial - request for photos

    Has anyone got any photos of LN281 that I could use in publicity material? I'm trying to research the history of this particular Wimpy as i'm running a project to erect a memorial for the crew that was killed in it when it crashed in Melton Mowbray on 13 Aug 1944. The aircraft was operated by No 14OTU at the time but previous to that was with 429 Sqn at RAF East Moor and coded AL-V.

    Default Wimpy

    G'day

    Wellington s/n LN281 and coded AL*V damaged both propellers, starboard wing and the bomb doors after crashing when a tire burst on landing at East Moor. It was returning from an op to Wuppertal on the 25th of June, 1943.

    Cheers...Chris
