When worst fears were confirmed; LETTERS.
RE: JT Williams letters - Mystery of Vampire Crash. About 1958, whilst working with two colleagues on high scaffolding, repairing a chimney stack above the St Asaph 'Cons' club roof, we heard an aircraft in the vicinity.
It was about midday, weather fair (bit of high cloud), we instinctively scanned the sky for a minute or two, then carried on working after another minute or two, we heard a 'boom'. "It seems as though that jet has just crashed", I said, we scanned the landscape towards Abergele, and could see a plume of smoke rising somewhere approx half way to Abergele - couple of miles circle of Bodelwyddan perhaps.
On getting home from work, my fears were confirmed. My mother said: "Have you heard about the aeroplane crash? One aircraft, one poor soul lost his life, I think the craft may have run out of fuel."
