    Default Accident at Sywell on May 5, 1941

    Hello
    I am looking for information on the subject of an accident at SYWELL's 11 SFTS. On 5 May 1941, an Airspeed Oxford crashed at the edge of the runway and caught fire.
    - What was the serial number of that plane?
    - What was his crew?

    thanking you

    Michel

    11 FTS Oxford L4575 crashed near 17.15 near Shawbury airfield on this date, killing John N Watson 1266787. Is this the incident you are looking for?
