On the 28th July 1945 four aircraft from No.316 Squadron had taken off from RAF Coltishall in Norfolk and flown to air stations elsewhere in the country. One of these was SR411 piloted by Warrant Officer Noga who flew to RNAS Inskip near Preston, taking an hour to make that flight.
The following day he left Inskip to return to Colitshall at 15:40, shortly after the aircraft crashed on Wives Hill near Darwen killing W/O Noga.
