Took off at 2035 hrs from RAF Kinloss in Scotland to participate in an attack on the German Battleship Tirpitz which was moored at the time in Fættenfjord in Norway. The aircraft was hit by AA fire while flying over Tirpitz and caught fire. The pilot managed to crash land the aircraft on some farmland just east of Lake Movatnet. One member of the crew was killed, the others attempted to escape to Sweden but were captured and taken POW.
