Can anyone supply crash and crew details? 27th December 1940. A Sunderland of 210 Squadron which was being flown by a young Australian pilot, Ivor Henry Meggitt, was attempting a routine landing in the dark when it hit a horsebox floating in the water. The aircraft broke up in the icy seas just off Maiden Island. Only one of the 11 crew members on board that evening survived the freezing conditions.
