EVENTS for 24th March

On 24th March 1941 Hurricane I Z4176 of SFP flew into high ground 4 miles North of Ynys-y-bwll.

On 24th March 1953 Vampire FB.5 VX476 of 233 OCU made a wheels-up landing at RAF Pembrey. The a/c returned from a sector recce but when the undercarriage was selected down the starboard indicator light showed red. Despite several reselections and yawing the a/c, three greens could not be obtained and ATC advised the starboard leg was not down. The pilot was instructed to make a wheels-up landing which he did safely.
