    Default Accident Beaufighter Mk.IF (X7554)

    Hi all,
    On 8 July 1941 crashed near High Ercall Beaufighter Mk.IF (X7554,WM-?) 68 Sqn Royal Air Force. This was due to hydraulic failure. Does anybody know more details of this accident (crew and the degree of damage, hull marking)?
    Thank you in advance for any information.
