On 11 April 1944, Wirraway A20-608 flown solo by Leading Aircraftman Cameron was engaged in a solo night lying exercise. After a bad landing, he attempted to go round again, and apparently lost control of the aircraft and it crashed at 1940 hours 2 miles south of the Uranquinty aerodrome and he was killed.
