Beschrijving:
Lancastrian G-AHWJ took off from RAF Wunsdorf at 14:56 for a flight to Tarrant Rushton to undergo a periodic maintenance inspection. The airplane strayed about 24 miles off course while homing in on an incorrect beacon. It struck trees on a hill, crashed and caught fire.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The accident was the result of the aircraft striking trees while being flown at a low altitude in conditions of poor visibility. The reason for the deviation from track cannot be determined, but it seems probable that the aircraft was being 'homed' on the Netheravon Beacon."
