    Paul, Hi,
    If you come unstuck, or unsuccessful, at TNA then you can always try MuseumBerksAv@gmail.com. They have a pretty good history of all the Miles a/c - and if they don't, then they probably know who does!

    Good call - will consider that. But the report is NOT mentioned ASAIK in the AB Air Britain Book on pre-war Miles which I think is surprising) as other RAF accident reports are... I wonder if it was missed as it was not in a military National Archives reference

    Thanks

    Hi Paul,

    The three page AIB report is winging its way to your forum email address.

    Looks like a classic case for dining in evening retell.

    The guy in the back tapped the guy in the front on the shoulder to say he wanted control.

    The guy in the front turned round and put it into a spiral dive.

    Both thought each other was controlling the move.

    Not until 1000 feet did anyone try to correct, rudder operated at 100 ft but hit ground before recovery.

    Regards
    Ross

    Many thanks for this

    I believe I have the whole story now - and this is not one of my mystery bale outs.
