    Default Spitfire K9794

    Hello Gents,

    K9794 crashed on landing on 10.01.39 - 19 Sq. Does anyone know the identity of the pilot involved?

    Thanks in anticipation

    Phil

    Hello Phil,

    The incident is not mentioned in Derek Palmer's book on No. 19 Squadron.

    Air-Britain Aeromilitaria issue 125 spring 2006 says : K9794 delived to 19 Sqn 4.10.38. Hit fence on overshoot and undercarriage collapsed on landing, Digby 10.1.39 [36.35 hrs] but no name of pilot either.

    Either a form 1180 or some period magazine could give the name of the pilot. I imagine you have already checked the ORB ?

    Hello Phil,

    Cannot pin point pilot but it was either the CO - S/Ldr H Cozens or F/O(?) R Marples. As Joss says we need F1180 to confirm.

    Regards,

    Ian

    Incident is not in ORB which is light on accidents!

    I have seen a copy of the 1180 crash card (courtesy of M Goodman) and the pilot was indeed R. Marples.
