    According to the ORB, lone occupant was Lt. S.I Kvam. Engine cut on take off from Exeter, aircraft destroyed in single engine landing at base. Escaped with only a twisted knee. Unusual name and rank, anyone have more info?

    Kvam and Read crewed together on Beaufighters, but Kvam is listed as "lone occupant" in the crash of HK138. It appears to have been a ferry flight.
