    Default Canberra PR.3 WE143 231 OCU crashed 23/06/58

    Hi, Iíve managed to track down / visit most of the Canberra losses around the former RAF Bassingbourn with the landowners permission, but this one has so far eluded me.
    I know the actual road where it ended up on and I have the local newspaper reports. But what would really help are photos of the actual position of its final resting place, or at least of where it first touched the ground port wing first.

    Does an accident record exist at the national archives for this particular crash?

    Thanks in advance,
    Rob

    Any idea if this is one has a file number too? I have visited the site of this one and have newspaper cuttings but photos would help piece things together.

    Canberra B.2 WH865 - 231 OCU - crashed 10/08/1957.
