Last landing

The date is a guess. I beleive the plane skidded off the runway and into mud.

[I remember in 6th year at KGS a group of us took a minibus and trailer to the airport and came back with one of the Rolls Royce engines from the plane. This was liberated as a trophy for the Technical Dept. at the behest of Sandy Firth or Alistair Tulloch. Is it still there?- Steven]
