Det sidste fly - T 1889 - nåede stærkt skadet ud til kysten. Da det stod Oates klart, at flyet aldrig ville nå England, vendte han om og - efter ny beskydning -
nødlandede han flyet (her) ved Vust. Han selv blev alvorligt kvæstet i ryggen, men både han, Biden og Graham overlevede. To måneders kyndig pleje af Oates på sygehuset i Fjerritslev (her) sikrede hans overlevelse. (Tekst fra Skudt ned over Danmark)

The last of the aircraft, T 1889, managed to reach the coast although already heavily damaged. When Oates realised that the aircraft would never be able to make it
to England, he turned the plane round and, after renewed attack by a fighter, he crash-landed (here) at Vust. Oates was seriously injured in his back, but after two months´ skilled treatment at Fjerritslev Hospital (here) he survived his injuries. His crew, Biden and Graham both survived.
