"CRASH-ON THE 13th GREEN
Evening Post Reporter
THE Sunningdale pilot of a Tiger Moth walked away almost unhurt yesterday after his plane crashed on Woking golf course at the 13th green. Photographer Mr. Michael Graham. aged 40. was flying from Kidlington, near Oxford, to Fair Oak, when his engine failed. On the way down, a wing hit a tree. and the plane was badly damaged. "I just bumped my nose against the cowling, and I cannot speak properly," Mr. Graham managed to say at his Charter Road home today. No one was on the course when the plane crashed, a club member said today. Police kept watch on the plane last night, and today it was being moved."
26/4/67: Registration G-ANDA cancelled as "destroyed"
