    Default Hurricane HW187 collision 24/8/44.

    Hi All,

    S/L John Frederick Pettigrew 36156 was killed on 24/8/44 in Hurricane HW187 when returning from test firing as part of the Aeroplane & Armament Experiment Establishment. He collided with another Hurricane in Dorset. Does anyone know the number of the other Hurricane and itís pilot and his fate.

    Cheers,

    John.
