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 Monday, October 11th 2010 at about 0630 a patrol of 8 Canadian Army soldiers from The Lincoln & Welland Regiment walked past the wreckage and memorial of MF-509.We were taking part in the British Army's Cambrian Patrol competition and our route brought us past the site where we saw a Canadian flag and were curious as to what the wreckage was from and upon later investigating on the internet learned of MF-509's fate. I just wanted to pass on this message and our respects to the crew of MF-509 and their family members.
