Unfallbericht:
The Catalina took off from RAF Killadeas at 09:15, engaged in a non-operational low-level bombing exercise. It was making its second run over the target when it crashed near Boa Island in Lough Erne. It appeared that the pilot who was turning on to the target failed to pull out of a diving turn and flew straight into the water, crashing half-a-mile from the target. The surface of the Lough was calm and there were streaks on the surface.
