    Default Possible Beaufighte crash

    Does anyone have any record of a Beaufighter which crashed at Pallinsburn, Cornhill-on-Tweed.

    One crew possilbly killed.
    Sorry no other information

    Aircraft crashed in the same field as that of Harrier GR7 ZG532 14th July 1999.

    regards

    Gents,

    ND184 crashed at Branxton Moor, some 6km south east of Cornhill-on-Tweed.
    I located the crash site 19th August 2011, finding fragments at the site.
