blitzkid1939: Me, P. Freddie standing on the right of the group of rescue firemen at the scene of the crashed Hastings 615 on the afternoon of 21st October 1957. I had thought I'd seen a trapped airman screaming through the port cargo door perspex window and grabbed an axe from the fire engine and started to smash the window. The swilling fuel leakage caused my uniform to catch light and they hose me down with foam and told me what a stupid pillock I'd been as all the crew had been rescued. My 24 Squadron commander Wing Commander Hitchins gave me a dressing down and instead of praising me told me what aan idiot I was and I had to pay myself for a new uniform!!!

blitzkid1939: If interested you can find me as the eye witness to this crash by googling "Hastings 615 crash RAF Colerne 1957" on the Aviation Safety Network official website. You might also google "Javelin crash RAF Geilenkirchen 1961" to see me as another eye witness to a Javelin which broke up above and rained down on three of us.

blitzkid1939: I thought at the time I was brave but the firemen showed me how stupid I'd been.I mean I had no idea I was on fire and they said they'd had to divert their attention from the burning aircraft to help me so I was a stupid pillock really
