    Default Sopwith Snipe & Bristol F2B

    Does anyone know any details (squadron, serial number, pilot) of the Sopwith Snipe crash in Warlingham, Surrey on 28 August 1924?
    Iím also after information about the Bristol F2B crash in Woldingham, Surrey on 27 March 1928.
    Thanks in advance.

    From the Accident Card (AM528):

    Snipe E6834, No.32 Squadron, RAF Kenley
    Sgt A H F Murphy (slightly injured)

    "Thought an error of judgement on the part of the pilot, when attempting to land owing to bad weather. The aeroplane was wrecked."

    Only card raised for a Bristol F2.B on the 27th March 1928 was for an aircraft that overshot at the Beardmore Reserve Flying Schoo (Renfrew)l. The aircraft serial is not recorded.

    The Woldingham F.2b was J6775 of 2 Squadron, dived in from 1,000ft in bad weather.

    I found this incident on the RAF Vault Web Site (which seeing as 1924 I found a bit Surprising)
