Hastings WD478 Strubby

WD478 crashed at Strubby/Manby on take off on 19th March 1951 the Hastings was seen to lift off, stall and dived into the ground, sadly 3 died whilst 5 others survived, this aircraft had only been off the production line 6 days earlier. No accident record exists.

I'm not suggesting anything here as this was a Mk C2 with an 'improved' tailplane, however these were the early days of the C2, elevator locks were a problem on occasion but it is interesting that no record card exists at the AHB or Hendon as were other Hastings aircraft that crashed.
