Incident 2: K2487 Bristol Bulldog Mk.IIA RAF 3 Sqn -" Overturned on landing & DBR". This is actually this incident "A Royal Air Force single seater

owing to shortage of petrol. The pilot had a remarkable escape from injury. The machine narrowly missed an oak tree and went a few yards over
the hedge and crashed in a field. The pilot just before the crash was able to jump clear. He landed safely in a field. The plane was smashed to pieces"
