Photo Comment

PK599 flown by 613 (City of Manchester) Squadron pilot Bill Barlow had to overshoot the runway. On opening the Griffon's throttle to go round again, the severe torque pulled the aircraft over. It was damaged beyond repair but the Royal Auxiliary Air Force pilot luckily survived unscathed.
