Description

On 10th September 1973 Hercules XV198 crashed into the wood to the northeast of the airfield and burnt out, killing all five aboard who included an air loadmaster. The crash was attributed to - engine failure during a 3-engine touch and go landing. Comparisons have been made with an accident to a Hercules at Fairford when an engine was said to have 'gone into reverse', meaning a propeller went into reverse pitch.
