    Spitfire XI PL987 of British Air Forces Communications Wing flew into trees on a its approach to Gatow and was written off. Colin Cummings' 'Price of Peace' notes that there were no fatalities in this incident but the Air Safety Network web site records one casualty. I can find no other incident on 19 November 1945 that could be relevant.
