    Default Chipmunk 23/06/1966

    Can anyone identify the serial numbers and the casualties of the following accident recorded in The Times online?

    Three men were killed when two RAF Chipmunk aircraft on a training flight from RAF Shawbury, near Shrewsbury, collided in the air over North Shropshire today.
    One of the Chipmunks, flown solo, belonged to the Birmingham University Air Squadron. Two RAF officers were in the other aircraft.
    The crash happened near the village of Tibberton, four miles West of Newport.


    Thanks in advance, Tom
