Friends of MF-509

MF509, a Wellington MK10 took off on Nov.20th 1944 for a training exercise. The plane experienced engine troubles and as they descended over the mountains of the Brecon Beacons their aircraft flew into the south west slope of Carreg Goch. Six RCAF crewmembers perished. A memorial was erected by the Welsh people and has since assumed a place of honour within the Brecon Beacons.

Climb to MF509 Completed

The climb to the MF509 Memorial took place on May 6, 2006 in good weather conditions, and excellent company. The hike culminated in a discussion of the crew lost in November 1944 at that spot, and the leaving of articles on behalf of the Villeneuve and Allison families. Prayers were read, and many photos were taken. Upon returning to the base of the valley, a dinner was held at the Abercrave Inn in Abercraf.

I have made a documentary (Of a sort!) about the incident.
