EVENTS for 16th March
On 16th March 1948 Meteor F.4 RA482 of 38 MU crashed at RAF Llandow killing the pilot. Shortly after take-off the a/c entered low cloud but was next seen to dive out of the cloud and fail to pull out before hitting the ground. The pilot was deemed to have erred in choosing to dive out of the cloud rather than to climb through it.
