    Default Aircraft Accident Cards.

    Hello. On the aircraft accident cards held by the RAF museum, is there a box that contains the total time on the airframe when the accident occurred?
    Thanks Richard

    Hi Richard,

    I do not remember such info on the Flying Accident Cards - there are usually flying hours of the pilot.
    But sometimes the aircraft total time was stated at the Aircraft Movement Card when struck off.

    Richard, no, the only hours field was for pilot(s) hours. The exact hours changed with each iteration of form, from the earlier type (solo|dual|total), others (solo|dual|total), total (solo|dual|total) through to total (all|type), night (all|type) with some forms recording instruction & Link hours as well.

    Thanks. The aircraft in question is a Lanc VI. I was hoping to see if this particular one did any ops with 405 Sq. I have a photo of it coded LQ-P, but never sure if it flew any ops. I think the hours are noted on the 765c accident form. Not sure if it survived.

    Thanks Col. That Mk VI was JB-713, coded LQ-Z. JB-675 is the one I am most interested in. It was involved in an incident in November 16, 1944 where it was hit by incendiaries while at 7 Squadron. If this 765c could be found, it may have is total hours.
    Richard
