    Default Master N7989 Crash

    Hi all,

    Can anyone confirm the pilot/crew names, location and circumstances of this crash on 10th August 1941? The aircraft came from 60 OTU at East Fortune.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Hello,

    If memory serves me the re is detail in Bomber Command losses on this aircraft.

    Sorry, not this one but 12 and 16 OTU's lost one each in Nov and Dec 44.

    Default Master N7989 Crash

    Hi again,

    These men may not be connected at all to the Master crash but as they both are at rest in Kilbride Old Church Yard ( see CWGC) they may be the crew.

    Capt. J.J. Anderson RAF Ferry Command Date of Death 10th August 1941,
    and
    Radio Opp K. W. Marks RAF Ferry Command Date of Death 10th August 1941.

    I did not look further.

    If other info on these two airmen is known please update us, thank you.

    Good hunting

    Alex

    The 2 men you mention were 2 of 22 killed in an aircraft crash near to the Summit of Goat Fell, Arran on 10.8.41.
    The aircraft was a RAF Ferry Command, Consolidated Liberator AM261.
    Crashed into a mountain ridge in rain, low visibility and overcast conditions. Navigational error.

    Hello Andy,

    Thank you for clearing up the two names. Sorry to hear that there were others also involved in the RAF B24 lost that same day.
