    Hello,

    UK (1) FOOTE & ROBERTSON.

    30-3-1944
    No.13 OTU
    Boston IIIA BZ288

    Took off Finmore, 10:35pm on a night cross-country exercise. R/T instructions were passed to the aircraft until 11:25pm then nothing further was heard. At 11:30pm the aircraft was heard flying very low over a house at Hardingstone and it crashed at Rothersthorpe, Northants. it exploded on impact and all were killed.

    1565701 Sgt (Capt./Pilot) Andrew FOOTE RAFVR +
    153584 F/O (Nav.) John Allan ROBERTSON RAFVR +
    AUS424123 F/Sgt (Air Gnr./Top) William Bruce HUXLEY RAAF +
    R/200515 (Air Gnr./Bottom) Alexander Scott GILLIES RCAF +

    A subsequent Court of Enquiry report stated. "There is no direct evidence as to the cause of the accident. It is possible that the moon being bright and visibility good, that the pilot was flying by visual means and ran into industrial haze over Northampton. Though he was in cloud he decided to get below it and by the time he had fixed his attention on his instruments, he had lost control of his aircraft which hit the ground at a high forward speed with the port wing very low."
