Narrative:
During night circuits and landings at Middle Wallop, Hampshire, Chipmunk G-AMUE collided with Boulton Paul Balliol T2 WG184 of 228 OCU, RAF at an altitude of between 1,500 and 1,800 feet AGL

The Chipmunk was flying through the airfield traffic zone at the time of the collision and failed to see - or take avoiding action - when the Balliol crossed its path. Both pilots bailed out of each aircraft (only one person was on board the Chipmunk), but the second (trainee) pilot of the Balliol, who was on secondment from the Burmese Air Force, was killed in the crash.

The Chipmunk's Registration G-AMUE was cancelled by the UK Civil Aviation Authority as "aircraft destroyed" on 28/11/1956.
