    Default Spitfire collided with Tiger Moth 4/6/41

    On 4/6/41, 2nd Lt William Maurice Clark was killed in Tiger Moth N9390 at 19 EFTS Sealand when he hit a Spitfire.
    Does anyone have any information on the Spitfire pilot? Was he in training or at a Squadron?

    David GH was told that a pupil had been killed by a Spitfire and the pilot hadnít really noticed the Tiger Moth until it crashed on the railway.

    Cheers

    I don't any details about the pilot of the Spitfire but I have the aircraft as R6887 or No.57 OTU from Hawarden. There was nothing in the ORB so I would try the RAFM to see if an 1180 exists.

    It moved through several units, ending up with the FAA before being destroyed in a second collision.
