    Default 15 OTU ORB/Hampstead Norris Station ORB 2.10.1943

    Hi-Does any forum member have the ORB for RAF No.15 OTU or the Hampstead Norris Station ORB for the 2.10.1943.
    I am seeking the details from the ORB's for Wellington LN497 which crashed on 2.10.1943 sadly killing all the aircrew.I have the A.M.Form 78 and the 1180 along with all the full names of the aircrew.

    Regards,Philip

    HI Philip,
    From 15 OTU Harwell ORB: "Wellington X, LN497 crashed into a hill at Swinhope Common, nr Westgate, Durham, at 12-26 pm, while on a cross country. No technical failure found."
    I hope this is of use.

    Did you ever found out much more about this plane? One of the casualties, Brannan, is buried in my local Cemetery.
