U.K. Crash of the Month
I started the U.K. crash of the month at the request of several of my good friends on "the other side of the pond." Each month I will post a few photos and the what, when, where on a crash that I have come across while researching through microfilm. Hopefully some of the accidents I post will be new to the many researchers in the U.K. or at least bring some unknown photos to light.
AAIR is pleased to announce that it has been accepted to the British Aviation Archaeology Council as an associate member!
