This RAF ground attack aircraft was hit by flak whilst crossing the coast of France at low level, with the pilot making a belly landing in the nearest field he could see. Unfortunately, he was captured before he had the chance to set fire to his aircraft, to prevent it falling into enemy hands – he was taken prisoner.
