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.

On Sunday, November 12th, members of "Clwb Cerdded Ystalyfera" (Ystalyfera Walking Club) will again be presenting a wreath on behalf of the Royal British Legion at the site of Wellington MF-509. Some of the members are to be seen in the photograph taken when family members of the crew visited the site earlier in 2006.
