  He crash landed at Wickenby in bad weather on return from an operation to Berlin on the 17th Dec 43. This was Black Thursday. The crews returned to their bases to find a very low cloud base and fog all over Lincs and East Yorkshire. Jack overshot the runway, retracted the under carriage and did a wheels up crash landing. 3 of the crew were injured but otherwise all were safe. W/O Bassett and his crew were screened at this point.
