    Default Spitfire crash, 27 August 1945

    The RAF Dyce ORB states that a Spitfire, coded 'MT-Z' [which would make it from 122 sqn] crashed on landing at Dyce on 27 August 1945; the pilot, Sgt Inglis, undershot, touched on the grass for 10 feet before the concrete runway edge ripped one oleo leg off. A/c came to rest a short way down the runway - Sgt Inglis' logbook was endorsed for bad airmanship. Does anyone know the i/d of the Spitfire please? NB PR.VIIG AR258 of 8(C)OTU was SOC on this date but given the 122 Sqn code, I don't think this is the same incident].
