On 7 August 1944 Flying Officer Ingleby was the navigator in the two-man crew of a Mosquito which took off from RAF Woodhall Spa on a training flight. During the flight an engine and wing failure caused the plane to crash into the sea off the Lincolnshire coast, killing both men on board. Flying Officer Ingleby was 23 years old.
