Beschrijving:
The DC-3 was on a VFR flight from London-Northolt to Glasgow-Renfrew and departed London at 09:13. An RAF Avro Anson (registration VV243) had taken off from Middleton at 08:09 for a training flight.
Both aircraft collided in mid-air at 4500 feet. Both planes disintegrated and fell to the ground.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The accident was the result of a midair collision. Since neither aircraft took any apparent avoiding action it must be concluded that the pilot of the Anson did not see the Dakota and that the pilots of the Dakota did not see the Anson. This must be attributed to failure on the part of the captain of each aircraft to ensure the maintenance of an effective lookout."
