Vulcan XM645 Sanctuary Museum Memorial. On 14 October 1975, Vulcan B.2 XM645 of No.9 Squadron lost its left undercarriage and damaged the airframe when it undershot the runway at Luqa airport in Malta. After a runway had been covered with fire prevention foam, the aircraft was turning inbound for a landing when it broke up over the village of Zabbar. The pilot and co-pilot escaped, using their ejection seats, but the other five crew members were killed. Large pieces of the aircraft fell on the village.
