Black flew to Arnhem from Down Ampney airfield on a resupply-mission on 21 september, around 11.00hrs. He was the wireless operator in C-47 (KG-417). The plane was hit by the load from another (American) Dakota flying above, lost a wing and crashed north of Driel on the southern bank of the river Rhine around 17.15 hrs.
