The crew were on a low level inception exercise from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire with 3 other aircraft, they were in the attacking pair. After an interception of the target pair the control column moved forward with the aircraft pitched down, the pilot attempted to recover the aircraft but the aircraft began oscillating violently. With virtually no height in which to recover the pilot ejected and shortly after the navigator did the same. Both received severe injuries during their ejections, including broken bones and in the case of the navigator burns when the aircraft impacted the ground ahead of him and he was briefly enveloped in the resulting fireball.
