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

1942-08-06ManchesterIL7385EM-U BarBottesfordTrainingCollided with 207 Sqn Conversion Flight Lancaster R5550 EM-GInjured At 0005 hours on the Aug 6th, Lancaster R5550 and because of repairs being undertaken on the perimeter track, was ordered by Flying Control to taxi back down the runway in use. Meanwhile, thinking that a/c was already clear, permission was given for Manchester L7385 to land on the same runway. The two a/c met head-on, there was an explosion, and although both the ambulance and fire tender raced to the scene, four aircrew had died instantly. A fifth died minutes later in the arms of the Medical Officer, Alan Ambrey-Smith. Amongst the dead were the pilot of the Lancaster and the flight engineer. Miraculously, five crewmen had escaped from the collision alive, although with varying degrees of injury. The pilot of the Manchester was admitted to the Burns Unit at RAF Hospital at Rauceby. He later returned to flying, but not operationally. The rear gunner of the Lancaster suffered shock and concussion. His only recollection of the accident was of waking up briefly in the ambulance and seeing another airmen whose face was covered in blood, at which point he passed out again. Sent home to Brighton to convalesce, he stayed out later than usual one night and decided to catch a bus home. Unfortunately the driver was having none of it, and declared ‘This bus is for war-workers only!, Dick lkin’s reply is not recorded. (Extract from "On the wings of the Morning" Vincent Holyoak)
