17 14/10/44 Duisburg(2) ME753, flown by F/O Plummer, lost its Perspex nose-dome entirely, allowing freezing slipstream to rush through the aircraft. Plumber took most of the blast for the rest of the flight home and his hands became literally frozen to the control column. After landing, the ground crew had to dismantle the stick with his hands still attached, so he could be taken to the medical section for appropriate treatment after removal of the flying controls.
