Really enjoyed a great weekend last year - really welcoming and well organised. The spot is pretty spectacular too. The drunken campfire intros still make me laugh! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Shame I can't make it this year, but have a great one for 2015, and see you all sometime soon. (thumbs)

Someone was asking what is the aircraft in the sea below the clifftop. I did some digging and found the following:

COMMUNITY Haverfordwest COUNTY Pembrokeshire

DESCRIPTION:


The aircraft was assigned to 67 Bomb Squadron, 44 Bomb Group and named BAT OUTA HELL.
It was one of 13 Liberators from Shipham and Fortresses tasked with bombing the U-boat pens at St Nazaire on 3 January 1943. Eight of the Liberators reached the target. On return, the flight leader thought that they were not on the right course and headed for the Pembrokeshire coast. Each returning aircraft was now running low on fuel and desperately looking for a place to land. With both engines on the port wing out of fuel, Liberator 41-23806 attempted a forced landing near Haverfordwest.

Number three engine failed when the aircraft was at 600ft and the aircraft dropped. Three crewman were killed. The others were taken to the War Memorial Hospital at Haverfordwest.


Note: no US Air Accident report has survived. Maritime Officer, RCAHMW 2011
