Catalina JX210 was flying from the seaplane base in Sullom Voe at the northern end of Mainland in the Shetland Islands on an air test when it stalled and dived into the ground on Hill of Garth on the eastern side of the Voe killing all of those onboard. Despite only being on an air test the aircraft was armed with depth charges and at least one detonated leaving a sizeable crater at the crash site.
The crew of the aircraft were recovered from the crash site and buried at different locations throughout the British Isles, one remained on Shetland being buried alongside a large number of other casualties at Lerwick Cemetery.
