    Can anyone tell me where the above Oxford crashed of 10 AOS. I believe it came down somewhere in Scotland.

    Hi Jim
    Air Britain T-serials states that T1287 flew into a mountain in cloud on a Navex. The location given is Rowantree and it is unverified. It could ,of course, be anywhere in the UK that is mountainous not necessarily Scotland

    The Oxford File puts it at Shalloch on Minnoch, near Rowantree, 14 miles S of Straiton, Ayrs. 77/4091, Rowantree is at 76/3492. Do you have any names for this accident? Note unit is given as 11 SFTS.
