    Re Master T9676 and Duff. There are three deaths associated with this a/c now.

    Duff on the 20th and Currie and Bushnell on the 19th.

    I have looked at FreeBMD, and all three deaths are registered at Thorne, the place of the accident.

    To confuse thing further T9676 was a Magister not a Master. Chorley confirms that Bushnell and Currie were killed in that incident but the ORB only mention officers so only Bushnell is mentioned in that.

    Yes Magister of course, which is what I have. The point I was trying to make is that there are three casualties associated with a two seater aircraft. As Duff died a day later than the other two but was registered in the same district, Thorne, I am wondering if he was the victim of some other accident in the district, perhaps at Lindholme, also in Thorne district. It is also possible that he was an unauthorised passenger in the Magister and taken to a local hospital or Lindholme injured. Or did the accident happen at Lindholme with Duff being injured on the ground?

    Thanks chaps, yes don't know what happened as I have Magister written down. Tablet must have chosen Master instead and I never noticed it. Now too late to edit .

    Just to confuse things, this is on the forums data link for "610539" -

    "Circumstances of Death: Died in Hospital of injuries following the crash of Master T9676 which crashed near Thorne in Yorkshire on 19th September".

    Many thanks
    Alex
