33 25/08/44 Russelsheim HK554 was coned and following vigorous attempts by the pilot to evade the beams, both right and left aileron control was lost. The pilot skilfully managed to keep the aircraft level on the return flight home, and his navigator, F/S Hartley, made an excellent job of getting them back on track after his navigation instruments became unserviceable and charts went missing during the AA/searchlight action.
