They discovered, moreover, that the nazis had stolen a British plane from another RAF base, had taken off in it, and, if it hadn't been for the weather, would have easily escaped to Germany. * * ¥ The amazing story was revealed Thursday. The participants were not named. The nazis spoke perfect English In prison camp, they altered their German uniforms by unstated means to resemble Royal Air Force uniforms and covered tha buttons with tinfoil in which they had worked the RAF insignia They escaped from the camp then by means not yet revealed, and went to the nearest RAF base where they picked out a plane on the runway and told the ground crew to make it ready for flight one of them saying: "We've go1 orders to go pp." The crew hurriedly sen-iced th plane and they were off in ii well in advance of the first alarm from the camp. But they ran into a headwind which grew strongei as they approached the channel They ran out of gasoline and landed in an open field. A curious crowd gathered and one of the nazis sent a bystander off. for enough to get them to the nearest RAF base. * * * There they ordered a ground creiv to refuel their plane, but the field's operations officer came over and told them the weather was too bad, that they'd have to wait over to return to their own base. * * * He invited them to the officer's mess. They were introduced, the British found them charming and soon they were in the midst of a party. : Alter food and drink, a RAF officers suggested that in view of their buffeting by the weather they might enjoy a hot bath Soon they were splashing in tubs, attended by RAF orderlies.
