    Hi all,

    Try this chap:

    I am working on a website profiling all ATA personnel. I clearly haven't transcribed the accident to my database yet as it would have appeared in his profile. Let me check my paper copies and I will get back to you.

    My website is in a temporary form at the moment but I have mountains of information to upload to the database. Until then some of the links won't work as I need all of the information uploaded in order to run the statistics. There are a couple of guys in the list who were in the RAF Ferry Pools and need to be removed.

    Yip, he's your guy. The accident summary is as follows. It was a taxying accident not a take off crash:

    Typhoon Mk.IB RB322, 1 FPP, Pilot F/O Edwin Arthur Boyes (uninjured), 16:30 hrs RAF Odiham

    "After taxying for a long way the pilot came to a halt before attempting to negotiate a dispersal track obstructed by an aircraft with the wheels on the track. When he started taxying under the guidance of ground crew, he found that his brakes were ineffective and collided with the parked aircraft. It was considered that the cause of this accident was that the brakes had probably become temporarily inefficient after lengthy taxying across wind, and the practise at this unit of parking aircraft with their wheels on the perimeter track"

    We're working together on this project. We'll probably transfer all of his info onto the dedicated ATA website. He's working on the profiles and I have all of the crash data.

    Excellent. I sent him some data on Lee Leslie Garlow.

    And you can get some info on Paul Lowman and Lee R Rawlings on my website. Follow the red links near the incidents including their names.

    Have you newspapers.com access? I might be able to search a few names?
