Interesting perspective on this incident in the November 1983 copy of Aeroplane Monthly - The incident nor crew not stated but date, location and circumstances match - The recollections of author James Henry Read #39682 say trainee pilot (not named) died shortly after with a broken back - but it was 6 days later - not detailing anything more here though due to the nature of the report
