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.

Photo of Jules Villeneuve


We have just received a photo of Jules Villeneuve, who was the navigator on MF509. The aircrew photo (see below) shows the original navigator Gaston Caron who was replaced by Jules not long before the fatal crash. This photo was provided by Eric Schofield, a nephew of Jules Villeneuve.
