Narrative:
The Anson was waiting for takeoff on runway when Hawker Hind K5530 landed on top of it. On this date Australian Peter John Moore (Service Number 754288) RAF was involved in an incident at 10 FTS and I can confirm that he was actually in Anson L7059 waiting to take off with his instructor Flt Lt Walter Robinson Cox (Service Number 32122) when he was hit by Hind K5530 which was coming into land.

The Hind had Instructor Pilot J R Wood (Service Number 590618) in it, but may also of had a pilot under instruction who is not named in the accident form 1180. This occurred at about 4.20 pm.
