    Armitage confirmed as killed 60 miles north-west of Lyons after a forced landing when the port engine failed. The pilot was criticised for some mistakes and did not carry a parachute. He was also thought too inexperienced on type to be engaged on ferrying duties. The navigator survived with serious injuries.

    LP901 crashed at the end of a 3 hour sortie at Myddle Shropshire. It overshot and then stalled during the overshoot after the flaps were raised too soon. Beside the three fatalities, two others were injured.
