    Default Unaccounted Airman 23-2-1940 Thread

    The Unaccounted Airman 23-2-1940 Thread is in the old archives.

    I found the crew for Tutor I - K4800 - 12 MU that crashed at Browness on Windermere today in the book 'Air Crashes in the Peak District'

    Crew:

    F/Lt G A B Cooper
    AC Bassow

    Flying from RAF Kenley to RAF Kirkbride the oil pressure dropped to zero, the pilot made a forced landing in a field near the 'Oaks'. Damage to the aircrfat was a broken propellar twisted undercarriage and bent wings. Crew OK and aircraft removed by crew from RAF Silloth
