    Default Spitfire and pilot ID

    Good morning all:
    On 12 April 1944 P-47D-21RE, 42-25530 was involved in a fatal to both pilots mid-air collision. The P-47 is quite well documented in AAF Form 14 44-04-12-525. The Spitfire does have a haphazard AAF Form 14 Accident Report that contains very little information. The P-47 crashed at Eshott Morpeth while the Spitifre crashed 1.5mi S of Eshott. Are there any Spitfire or RAF Accident Report specialists out there that could supply me with the pilots name and serial number, the Squadron that he was with, and the aircraft serial number to the Spitfire. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated with many thanks in advance. Ted51

    Many thanks for all the responses. The blanks have been filled in nicely with the Form 14 index being that more accurate. Ted51
