    Hi all, just a note to:

    24 - Wellington X - 6(C)OTU - HE496.

    while on training flight over the Solway. The aircraft caught fire (the cause has not been established) and spun into the sea.
    7 Czechoslovak airmen lost (crew under training + instructor-pilot) while they were preparing for service with 311 Squadron
