P/O K.H.C. Brown - Pilot
Other crew not known.
Halifax Mk V, DG253, was airborne at 2014 but a strong smell of petrol pervaded the bomber and the crew returned to base forthwith. Touch down was made at 2029 off an excessively fast approach, resulting in the Halifax over-running the runway, and finishing up on scrub land. The aircraft was damaged beyond repair. There were no injuries.
