Vampire FB5 WA134

The farm in the shot is Nantannog near Llanerchymedd , on the 9/7/53 Vampire Wa134 was on a training flight from Valley when the aircraft entered a inverted spin the pilot attempted to bale out but was too low for the parachute to fully deploy and was killed ,the Vampire hit
outbuildings at Nantannog and causing a fire that led to the loss of some livestock !
I have been unable to identify the Libyan pilot who was lost in this crash .
