    G'day

    Weightman was a Pupil Pilot at No. 33 Service Flying Training School (Carberry, Manitoba) at the time of his death. He was killed on the 29th of May, 1944 in Anson Mk. II, s/n 8468. The Anson lost partial power shortly after take-off and subsequently crashed killing him. The pilot was slightly injured.

    Cheers...Chris

    My grandfather was the flight engineer on Stirling R9298. Is there any particular information needed for this aircraft?
