According to 'Final landings' '02-Sep-49 VT247 Meteor F4 222 Sqn Near RAF Thorney Island 1 [casualty] The aircraft was engaged in an aerobatic practice for a Battle of Britain display. The pilot rolled the aircraft inverted over the airfield with its dive brakes extended and at low height and airspeed. The aircraft crashed to the ground from a height of about 100 feet. Flight Lieutenant Arthur John Mutton Morgan [age not given]' Geoff.
