57 OTU Spit's or not?Hi all, I'm trawling through my list of 57 OTU Spitfire crashes and have come up with the following serials for which I need clarification: 14.08.44 Supermarine Spitfire II P7583 57 O.T.U. Eshott Aircraft undershot its landing it then hit a fence and crash-landed at Eshott. 05.01.44 Supermarine Spitfire IIA P8015 57 O.T.U. Eshott Aircraft was in the circuit when the engine failed and the pilot then ditched the aircraft in the sea 1 mile north of Boulmer, Northumberland. 15.03.44 Supermarine Spitfire IIA P8608 57 O.T.U. Eshott Aircraft collided on ground with Master N8044 at Eshott. My records show P8608 & P8015 never served with 57 OTU, whilst P7583 does not appear to be a Spitfire serial. Any ideas? Also does anyone have pilot names for these incidents? Thanks, Jim ....Read More.JimCorbett1977 on 5th June 2009 07:42:20
