Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk

NOTE ON DATES: IMPORTANT: For consistency, the Date is given as the date the mission TOOK OFF since the precise time of a loss is not always certain. Take Off date is unambigous and fixed in the official records, but obviously in those cases where the incident occurred before midnight UK time, then the Take Off Date will be the same as the Incident Date. Of course, most Bomber Command missions flew through midnight, therefore a Luftwaffe claim against a plane - or a locally generated crash report - may record the incident as occurring on the day following our Take Off Date. Bear this in mind when cross-referencing to our Luftwaffe Victories by Name/Date Database and other Luftwaffe sources. In some cases other sources may quote the date following our date, using locally generated reports as their source. To add to the potential for confusion, remember to take into account a Luftwaffe recorded date will be in local time, 1 hour ahead of UK time. When we discover a validated Incident Date we change our record if necessary

405 Sqn were in the process of moving from RAF Topcliffe to undertake a detachment at RAF Beaulieu in Hampshire. A number of bicycles are believed to have been also loaded on board. The a/c took off from RAF Topcliffe and headed initially in a north-easterly direction before making a turn over Melmerby and then to fly a course which would have been in a southerly passing the westerly side of Dishforth airfield before heading towards Hampshire. Before it got back over the general area of the airfield and while flying at 300 ft the a/c turned onto it's back and crashed near Melmerby. Sadly all fifteen airmen on board were killed in the crash. It was the worst non-operational loss in Yorkshire in the whole of the war. A house was damaged prior to the crash and it was thought to have been struck by a wire aerial hanging from the a/c. While there was some suggestion locally that the a/c was overloaded the crash investigation thought otherwise and the reason for the crash was obscure other than it probably stalled at a low height.(Aircraft Accidents in Yorkshire)
