    Default Blenheim IV Z6175 crash and subsequent deaths and how to update the info on here.

    I have never found out how to update the information on parts of this site.
    I have been researching the death of:
    IR81/15816 Blenheim IV Z6175 Sergeant G S Brocklington (RCAF), Sergeant J D Moller: died of injuries; Sergeant A C Sallis: injured; Blenheim Z6175, 404 Squadron, aircraft accident during Navigation exercise flight, near Sunderland, 12 June 1942.

    Sergeant Sallis succumbed to his injuries on 14th July 1942.

    I have more detail and pictures but have no idea how one feeds that into the database. If anyone can assist please help and send me an email.
    Thanks

    If you are talking about updating the entry at:
    http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...php?uniq=Z6175
    then that can easily be done by one of the moderators.
    Just let us know what you have to add.

    According to the 404 ORB Sallis was uninjured in the Z6175 crash of the 12th June 1942, but was killed on the 13th July 1942 in a different crash when W/C Dixon was also killed.

    Chris is correct AIR81 for K7120 agrees with names but has incorrect date transcribed by TNA.
    https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ls/r/C17478297

    F1180 confirms date for K7120 as 13th July, 2 killed, during air test at 12:15 hrs, 22mins into flight during low aerobatics.

    Looks like the W/C was undertaking a fitness test for Sallis to return to ops.
