    Default Mustangs FZ122 & KH546

    Hello,

    Hoping someone can help me with a full service history of Mustang III FZ122, and Mustang III KH546 from the relevant A-B Vols.

    Have some details, but need verification of some finer points.

    All help appreciated.

    I don't have accident card details the 126Sqn ORB has the following:

    "Later in the day two new pilots F/Lt Thurgood and F/Off Neville were both killed when they crashed during practice flying they collided and the aircraft crashed at West Raynham. They had only been with the Squadron a very short time and were not operational on Mustangs."

    FZ122 was 5J*B. The accident card might include details of which pilot flew which aircraft.
