WWII Cowley, Oxford, Aircraft Crash


Anyone know anything about a large a/c that crashed on Cowley Airfield (Use bu Morris Motors for small aircraft servicing. The 'plan clipped couple of houses on streets adjoining the airfield. Guess that was in 1943/44 as parents too me to see it - all I remember was pile of I guess air plane pieces!

I have never found out what happened to the plane. It sounds like pilot had to used airfield in emergency and runway was maybe too small?
Would like to hear more on this event -
