||Killed when twenty three 1,000 bombs being carried on a tractor-towed bomb trolley train exploded at 17:45 hrs, blowing a large crater in the perimeter track. Some damage also occurred to station buildings and adjoining farms. No aircraft were seriously damaged. Kenneth Green (who was interviewed for the IBCC Digital Archive in 2015) remembers carrying out an inspection of an aircraft from B flight. His friend was working on the port inner engine and he offered to test run the engine for Kenneth since he was late for a date. As Kenneth cycled away he heard an explosion. On returning from his date at around midnight he was told that people had been 'sweeping the deck looking for your fingernails'. The cause of the accident was the failure of a spring in the bomb trailer, resulting in the safety pin being pulled out and arming one of the bombs.
