The name of the Captain of the Valiant was Sqdn. Ldr J H Garstin,

See my recent post on another thread.

I never knew about the Anson, I was in Karachi with some of the Valiant tankers.

Are you sure you have the right year?

My dad was one of the two passengers in 1960. I posted the pictures elsewhere. We ended up with glossy masters from the newspaper!

Since Nickctaylor posted these on BookFace, I shall do the honours! 👍

Northolt seemed to be a bit of a Mecca for roof-top landings...

He was pulling back on the yolk at the time of impact...

And to embellish the old Duxford pilots' r/t joke...

In several of the fantastic photos posted by Senior Pilot, above, it says clearly TURN LEFT. He obviously didn't.
Cheers, Laurence

You beat me to it.... he certainly appears to have scrambled his instructions.

Just a couple of comments/thoughts:-
1). It is remarkable that this thread has run for 15 years before these excellent clear images have come to light.
2). Also surprised at how little damage the aircraft has suffered. Must have come down with very little forward speed.
Engines stopped: as the port propeller blade does not appear to be damaged ?? It almost looks as though it could have
been lifted off the roof and reflown after some repairs and a check over....!!
