B.E.A. Aircrash at Dublin Airport. The crashed BEA Vanguard G-APEJ that carried 43 passengers and seven crew from London to Dublin ploughed its way through half a mile of grassland before returning to the concrete runway, when its front undercarriage appeared to have failed on arrival at Dublin Airport. There were no fatalities in the accident. The path of the aircraft can be seen in the trail of earth across the runway. Note the Airport Fire Service vehicle a Thorneycroft Sun Foam Tender.
