    Default Form 78 Aircraft movements for Avro Tutor K6097

    Hi All, would anyone happen to have the movements for Tutor K6097 please? It was written off in an accident near Forsinard, Sutherland on 30 Jan 1942, I have the details on this one but I think it was involved in an earlier accident. Regards. Dave.

    In the absence of a reply citing a Form 78 directly, here's the summary entry from
    Halley The K File: The Royal Air Force of the 1930s (Air Britain 1995):

    Avro Tutor I K6097
    "Deld to 2 ASU 26.8.35;
    16 Gp HQ Flt Abbotsinch 20.5.37;
    602 Sqn 25.5.38;
    9 MU 30.9.39;
    234 Sqn 11.3.40;
    CF Wick by 31.12.41;
    Engine cut; hit trees and dived into ground near Forsinard, Sutherland, 26.1.42;
    SOC 18.2.42"

    That is, 26 Jan not 30 Jan.

    Many Thanks Don / Col. Yes! I note the correct date was 26th. I was looking at a copy of the Station Log for Wick and it is entered as 30th for this accident. Must have been just added later. Regards. Dave.
