September 2nd 1941, “There was a fatal accident at 0943 hours No.1380126 Sgt A.C. Howard was piloting an Oxford aircraft with No.1286483 Sgt C.A. Edwards as passenger. It appears that Sgt Howard lost control of the aircraft while flying in cloud and failed to recover until almost on the ground when he pulled out so suddenly that the elevators and ailerons were pulled off.
