Whitley P4971Hi Col, Both 1 OTU and 3 OTU had aircraft that crashed on that day. The Form 1180 are equally unhelpful. Wellington W5619 of 3 OTU went missing on a navex and as you have noted P4971 crashed after take off 1 mile east of Silloth. No guidance is given on crew compositions. Henk is likely to have some snippets of who was on what that can be worked up. Regards Ross ....Read More.Ross_McNeill on 1st November 2008 06:13:37

Whitley P4971Hi Gentlemen, That ties up Whitley P4971 very nicely! I must admit (Wellington) W5619 slipped under my guard. In a way I'm glad it did. the 1(C)OTU,3(C)OTU and Ground Accident conundrum was quite enough, let alone adding W5619 to the mix! Ross,Dave & Henk, Thank you, from a very junior member. Col. PS. Yes, I am in the process of updating my AB Serials! ....Read More.COL BRUGGY on 1st November 2008 10:08:12
