    Default Three Aircraft Hawker Nimrod Collision 30th April 1937 - 800 Sqn Droxford Hants

    In this one I know the full circumstances, pilots and serials but not right match up. On 30th April 1937 a flight of three Hawker Nimrod aircraft from 800 Sqn (S1615, S1631 and K4625) were flying in formation with one aircraft above the other two at Droxford Hants. The top one aircraft then nosed dived and collided with the other 2. Two pilots bailed out, the third was killed. The pilot who was killed was Sgt Harry Croft #560053, the two who survived were Flt/Lt James Winter Carmichael More and Sgt Hugh Philips Hopkins.

    I am hoping someone can match names to individual aircraft in this case
    Many Thanks
