    Default Two incidents at 23 ERFTS 2nd Sept 1939

    Two incidents at 23 ERFTS 2nd Sept 1939

    As 23 ERFTS was based Rochester

    I have the following incidents on 2nd Sept 1939

    Could the location or identity of Audax I K7360 be wrong ??

    Staffs is a long way away from Kent, especially for what I would expect to be an ERFTS crew?


    02.09.39 Audax I K7360 23 ERFTS Near Hednesford, Staffs. CFL
    02.09.39 Magister I N3981 23 ERFTS near Cassington, Oxon. DIG


    The reason I say this is that Magister I N3981 news reports state collision ?

    See http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...-2nd-Sept-1939

    Thanks

    The folk at museumofberkshireaviation.co.uk/ have a great deal of info on all Miles a/c, and are very helpful!

    I also wonder if the AB Miles book has anything relevant

    The K File says that the Audax was being ferried, which will explain why it was far from home.
