At 12:50 pm on Sunday, 20th February, 1994 – the exact time of the crash in 1944 – about 50 people gathered on the hillside in a slightly drizzling rain for the unveiling and dedication of the memorial to the two airmen who lost their lives in the service of their country. The silver memorial plate has been erected on the wall of one of the buildings on Mr. Lunny’s farmyard close to where the stricken, burning plane came to rest. Mr. Irving joined the RAF in 1943, was posted as a flight engineer, and was a crew member of the ill-fated aircraft. Mr. Irving explained what happened. On Sunday morning 20th of February, 1944 the Sunderland took off on a training affiliation with twin engined Beaufighters from St. Angelo airfield. “We were using camera-guns,” Mr. Irving explained. “We were taking evasion action in a mock battle, maneuvering to avoid the Beaufighter.” Each aircraft was acting the role of “target” for the other during the training exercise in low-level flying. The pilot of the heavy Sunderland was trying to gain some extra speed by putting the seaplane into a dive as they were approaching Trory. “He hit a tree first and banged into the power cables.” said Mr. Irving. “This set the aircraft on fire. I remember us hitting the laneway. Debris was flying everywhere. The field was covered by bits and pieces of the engines. We ended up against a tree. The hull was blazing. The ammunition was exploding all the time. Out of the crew of ten, two lost their lives. The others escaped with injuries, largely through the brave action of a local farmer, Mr. William Lunny, who ran with a hatchet, chopped a hole in the fuselage of the burning aircraft and helped the crew out.
