BLE R3802 tog del i angrebet på Aalborg, Fliegerhorst Aalborg West den 13. august 1940. Nedstyrtningsstedet er her. (Kilde: Ole Rønnest)

Ved Kaas faldt næsten samtidigt R 3802 (her) og T 1827 (her). Fra det første reddede Ellen og Dance sig med faldskærm, mens Davies omkom i flyet. I T 1827 nåede Bristow at erkende, at Jones og Cranidge begge var dræbt. Han fik sin faldskærm hægtet på, fjernet flyets kamera og kom med besvær fri af kameralugen. Hans faldskærm foldede sig ud få sekunder før han nåede jorden. (Tekst fra Skudt ned over Danmark)

At almost the same time R 3802 (here) and T 1827 (here) crashed at Kaas. From the R 3802, Ellen and Dance saved themselves by parachute, while Davies died in the plane. In T 1827, Bristow found time to ascertain that Jones and Cranidge had both been killed. He managed to hook on his parachute, remove the aircraft´s camera, and with some difficulty, got out through  the camera hatch. His parachute opened only a few seconds before he hit the ground.
