Mid-air collision, 21.5.41, Oxford 2 SFTSHi all, I would like to ask you for help with collison of Oxfords V3220 and W6583. Unfortunately I have a different info from Czech sources than I found in English sources and which were provided to me by Henk. We checked AB serials and Oxford file so it is not necessary to check these sources. My questions - if anyone could answered: 1) units of each plane? 2) crash location of each plane? 3) crew of each plane? I know for sure there were killed 3 airmen: LAC (Pilot u/t) Stanley W. JENNENS - 1186242, and LAC (Pilot u/t) Clifford S. FERGUSON - 1109099. Sgt Vaclav Kriz (Czech) Unfortunately Henk has Jennens and Ferguson on V3220 and Kriz on W6583 but I have Kriz on V3220 what I think is correct as he is recorded to be trained at No. 2 SFTS. So if anone can help me to sort out this mess I will be very grateful TIA Pavel ....Read More.CZ_RAF on 15th September 2010 08:01:29
