Narrative:
Crashed near Lutterworth, Leicestershire 2/10/1965. Pilot was John Edwards (GEC Flying Club member, Passenger Phil Winckley was member of The Coventry Gliding Club). Mr Edwards lived in Coventry and worked for the GEC Ltd. He also gained his PPL with the GEC Club. Cause of crash never confirmed as both ocupants suffered fatal injuries. Aircraft was based at Baginton Airport, Coventry. KJN took the phone-call at Hus Bos from Pete Devey when they were over-due and saw the accident site & wreckage the following day. It appears that they had suffered engine failure climbing out after a practice field landing, and stalled in from, perhaps, 50 or 100 feet. Not nice.

Registration G-ANHI cancelled by the CAA on 22/11/1965 as "Destroyed"

Sources:

I was a flying member of The GEC Club and the pilot was known to me personaly. It was also reported in some detail in The Coventry Evening Telegraph at that time.
