As a result of the close-down of the UK by the British Government last night, we have made all the Buy/Sell areas read-only until we open back up again, so please have a look at the announcement linked here.
Hi Angus I have a feeling that if you were resting at Swirl How and spotted wreckage on the scree slopes to the north then it would be that of HP Halifax B Mk V LL505. LL505 struck the top of Great Carrs while on a night navigation exercise from 1659 Heavy Conversion Unit, RAF Topcliffe. All 8 crew were killed. Hope this helps. Quentin
Cracking looking Hurricane there and a very interesting subject! My father was a flight commander at RAF Dundonald from June to October 1944. He managed to solo on the Hurricane not to mention many other of the strange beasts on 514's books. Not bad for a ham fisted Halifax driver! May I ask where you get your information on 514's squadron codes and aircraft serial numbers? I'm planning on building Airfix's new tool Blenheim IV as the aircraft Dad was flying when he happened to collide with a LCT when he was distracted whilst carrying out a low level simulated attack. Many thanks. Quentin
