Narrative:
The pilot had to bunt and roll to port to avoid a collision when acting as an aggressor with two other Jaguars while flying up the Wye Valley three miles SE of Builth Wells, Powys. He then entered the slipstream of one of the other Jaguars and had to manoeuvre hard to avoid a collision with the ground.

Control was lost but the pilot - Flight Lieutenant Ian David Hill - ejected too late and was killed when the aircraft crashed. The pilot had previously ejected from Canberra WD963 on 29th June 1967 and belly landed in Canberra WT209 on 1st February 1968
