    Default Shark K8503 No 1 AGS - 20.2.41

    Does anyone have any additional details on the crash at Keynsham, near Bristol of Shark K8503 from 1 Air gunnery School, Worthy Down? 20th Feb 1941

    Two airmen died in the crash, the aircraft was supposed to have crashed whilst the pilot showed off to his girlfriend?
