On Sunday 12 March, 1950, a plane packed with jubilant Welsh rugby fans returning from Dublin crashed at Llandow, in the Vale of Glamorgan, claiming the lives of 80 people. At the time it was the world's worst air disaster.
Only three people survived the crash. On the 60th anniversary of the tragedy, Wales News Online has an interview with survivor Melfyn Thomas, now 84, and a full report on the disaster.
