The aircraft belonged to RAF 234 Sqn. Coastal Command and was coded AZ-G.
T/O Bannf. OP: Anti shipping in Kattegat.

While crossing the Mariager Fjord at 16:13 hours German flak opened fire and P/O Peter J. W. Bell was hit in the arm by a tracer.
His Mustang was hit in several places and he had to belly land it 400-500 meters east of the road between Nibe and Hvalpsund near Hornum.

He was taken to Doctor Bülow of Hornum for first aid by members of the local resistance movement. After initial treatment he was taken to the hospital in Løgstør for further treatment.

On 15/5 1945 he was back in England.
