xx Photo of NA39 XK488, Hatfield crash
« Thread started on: Mar 3rd, 2009, 12:52pm »

I'd like a copy of the photo of NA39 that was in Flypast last year to feature in a book out in July. The weight engineer was a chap called Ted Stocker, and he remembers the crash well 'cos he was blamed for it initially and later cleared! Ted won the DSO and DFC as a flight engineer, latterly working for De Havilland and Bristol Siddeley. Can anyone help? smiley Thanks.

I only have sight of the photo in April 2008 issue of Flypast that says it is of XK488 and was a long-time gate guardian at the FAA museum. (That's where I learned of your society). Aircraft is clearly in a greenhouse, and number on the back by the tail does seem to show '488'.

Does anyone have a jpeg copy that I can use (obviously properly credited). Cheers
