"My" UnAccounted Airmen 03/06/1943These five men died in a mid-air collision between Oxford II, V3821 and Oxford I, X6871. Both aircraft were from 20 OTU, Kidlington.

According to the accident reports: Wood, Innes-Smith and Banks were in V3821 Boire and Brooke were in X6871 The info in the pages below should be corrected by whoever has those accesses, I sure don't. [url][/url] should be X6871 [url][/url] should be V3821 I can produce both reports on request. Cheers, ....Read More.Frank Dutil on 7th October 2022 03:38:19
