Crash site resources

Post by GOOSE » Sun Mar 20, 2011 7:37 pm

As requested, here's a sticky of crash site forums mentioned so far -

Irish Crash sites - http://www.skynet.ie/~dan/war/crashes.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

More Irish info - http://homepage.eircom.net/~wrgi/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

USAF injury records - http://www.usaafdata.com/?q=search" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Feel free to add to this and I'll tidy it into one resource for you. Cheers Stubie!

I get the journal produced by the British Aviation Archeology Council, always a good read...

I have many toys. Amongst them are a camera and a scanner.

A long shot....

I would like to research a meteor crash which occurred nearby (Malvern) in 1950. I have basic info such as type, pilot, registration etc from the good (but now non-existence) test flying memorial web site. It crashed near to where a friend now lives and he has asked for more info such as cause, exact location (it may have been on his land). Were there official reports done , similar to the MAAS which now exist, or is it a case of researching local archives for press cuttings etc.?

Have found sites on American crashes but little on RAF / UK.

Would welcome any thoughts / guidance.

Thanks
