This was the last accident in the Wootton area during WW2 (to be exact ten days after VE-Day) although there were two more Wellington incidents on the airfield during 1946 before the unit was disbanded on 10th September 1946.

The aircraft lost power on the port engine after take off and found it impossible to gain height coming down in a field in Lambororugh Hill next to the Waterworks by the Cornerhouse Garage. There was only one crew on board - a 23 year old Flying Officer R. J. Angell who was unhurt in the crash but the plane was a write off
