EVENTS for 28th December

On 28th December 1940, at 02:00, Whitley V T4335 KN-P of 77 Sqn crashed into a small copse near St.Athan Airfield on return from a bombing mission to the airfield at Merignac. At the time of the accident the Whitley was well East of its intended track, this was attributed to W/T failure and a very strong easterly wind. The crew all survived.
