    Default Howard crash Boscombe Down (moved)

    Has anyone information on the Howard crash during the late 1940's while the aircraft was assigned to the Airborne Forces Experimental Establishment, Boscombe Down. A colleague of my late father, photographer Ronald Whatley was killed. Ronald and dad, Bob Bird, were photographers with the AFEE. I found reference to Ronald's death going through some old notes. Ronald had a son called James, who I would like to contact.

    This is Harvard T.2B FX371, crashed 2 miles North of Amesbury, June 12th 1952. There is an article about Whatley's son Jim visiting Boscombe Down recently on page 22 of this issue of the Boscombe Bulletin:

    Maybe drop them a line and see if they can put you in touch?
