Blenheim IV Z7432/YH:J of No 21 Squadron at Watton on 6 July 1941

(Rus)  The Blenheim was a popular aircraft with pilots, having few vices. As with all aircraft of its day, a loss of hydraulic pressure would often result in a forced 'belly landing', as befell No 21 Squadron's Z7432/YH:J on 6 July 1941. The fire crews at Watton were soon upon the scene and liberally doused the smoking Mercury engines with foam flame-suppressant. (S. Clay 1)
