On the 13th of November 1943 the crew of a Warwick aircraft  had been on an Air-Sea Rescue flight with another Thornaby based Warwick, on a search off the Dutch coast. They were on their return leg and were flying back to base after failing to find what they were looking for. After crossing the English coastline, thought to be between Scarborough and Whitby, both aircraft flew into a thunderstorm near Whitby. This Warwick was struck by lightning which sent it diving for the ground, where upon it blew up on impact. The other aircraft was also struck by lightning, the pilot managed to pull that aircraft out of its dive and it returned to base. 
Pilot S/L Good and his crew were all killed on impact.  The Canadian crew were:
F/O (N) Willis W Coons 
WO2 (WAG) William V Crockett 
F/Sgt. (AG) Douglas A Payton 
S/L Good is the only military burial in the churchyard of St. Martin Church, Houghton, Norfolk.
