Neďaleko obce Modrovka havarovalo 17.10.1944 Mosquito FB Mk.VI „Flame Mc Goon“ od 418. perute RCAF. Lietadlo vyštartovalo zo základne Hunsdon 16.10.1944, pre doplnenie paliva pristálo pri Saint-Dizier a pokračovalo smerom ku letisku Piešťany spolu ďalším strojom, pilotovaným F/L Stanom Cotterillom, DFC. Ich úlohou bolo zaútočiť na leteckú jednotku pôsobiacu na tamojšom letisku. „Flame Mc Goon“ bolo však zasiahnuté protilietadlovou streľbou a núdzovo pristálo blízko rieky Váh v chotári obce Brunovce. Členov posádky – Lt. Stuarta Maya a Lt. Jacka Ritcha zachránil pastier kráv František Martinec.
