There are two accounts of this crash, the first is that the aircraft had attacked the ship yards at Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, before turning southwards to return to France.
The second, from the RAF Air Intelligence report, had the aircraft on a shipping reconnaissance flight over Liverpool Bay. It had left from Nantes, flown over the St Georges Channel and lower Irish Sea. The pilot had said that he became disorientated when approaching their patrol area and flew into cloud. Shortly after the aircraft struck the upper slopes of Llwydmor, killing in the engineer.
Gefr Bruninghausen was, after the war, buried at Cannock Chase German Military Cemetery.
