    Default 59 OTU crash 12.12.1941

    Would anyone be able to supply information on a fatal crash of a pilot at 59 OTU on 12.12.1941. Pilot was A WINTHER.

    I am interested in the aircraft type as well as - if possible - the serial.

    Regards

    I have been advised that this may not have been in December 1941, but in September 1941. Still interested in details if possible.

    Sorry, remiss of me.

    Air Britain Crash Sites in the UK , gives the date, serial and 'Warwick Bridge'.

    Air Crashes in the Lake District adds 'Low Wood Farm' and the pilot's name.

    regards
