    Hello all,

    I'm new to this forum and RAFCommands, but so glad I found you. I was wondering if any of you could help me find out more information about my Grandfather, Leading Aircraftman Philip Arthur Healy 655368 who died in a mid air collision whilst training to be a pilot in the RAF nr Meir, Stoke on Trent. He died on 10th July 1941. I see there is an entry here on this thread, that he was training in a Miles Madgister and tragically died with two other men that dreadful day. On his death certificate it states he was a passenger and died as a result of his injuries. His death certificate also states that there was coroners inquest and the verdict of accident was recorded. One man must have survived this dreadful collision as there were two people in each plane and the Pilot Officer instructors were both flying their respective aircrafts.

    I'm so sorry that I am too late to contact Henk, who I can see made such an enormous contribution to this website and forum. I know I can get some details from Kew Archives which I think is where the information on this thread came from. I do have copies of his RAF papers where he had only volunteered and joined the RAF on 20th March 1941 having deferred from the TA Royal Engineers in Leicester where he had been for 4 years since he was 16, so he was only 3 months into his training when tragedy struck. But if anyone kind enough to read this has any more ideas where I can get information of him. I only have a school photograph of him but don't know where his military photos would be. Any ideas where records would be. He died before even knowing my my mum was on the way and not being married to my grandmother, life was very very difficult for her. I wish I had known him.

    Thank you in advance for any help you can give if anyone sees this.

    Best wishes, Ellie

    The AIR/81 file number appended by his entry is available via a visit to Kew and will have all the details that are still available. There will be no photos of him in his service records which you can order for a few but will be heavily redacted leaving just 2 pages in most cases
