Typhoon Crash!

Please download Java(tm).

On the 17th February 1944 during practice flying, Sgt Powell suffered an engine failure
on approaching to land. However he was
able to successfully crash-land his Typhoon (DP-K) in a field, short of the runway. The aircraft was recovered, repaired and flew again.

We have updated the photo with today's view.

Our thanks to the Bulleid Family for
permission to use the original photo and to
the owners of the field for allowing us to
mark out the position for the update!
