On take-off from RAF Marham near Norfolk, United Kingdom, at 10:54 hours for return to Skydstrup air base the tower observed flames coming from the engine area and advised the pilot, Captain M. A. Friis, who elected to continue the take-off. Some 6 kilometres from the airfield, the crew ejected safely over Narborough at a height of 1,600 feet. The aircraft came down safely in an empty sugar beet field near Necton, Norfolk, after flying on for a further 12.8 kilometres. The student pilot, First Lieutenant M. L. Andersen's parachute caught in a 26 foot tree, and took an hour to get him down
