I read somewhere that non combat related aircraft losses (accidents) accounted for as much as 10% of total wartime losses.

Blimey Jack you have been busy! Where did you get the fighter crash info from?

 

 

The list is a copy and paste( complete with my typos)from my Dorset Airfields Website/Dorset Crashes page .(It may be downloaded as a text file if you wish)

 

http://daveg4otu.tripod.com/dorset/dorcrash.html

 

I also have a Hampshire Crashes list (very large - this one also can be downloaded as a text file)...

 

http://daveg4otu.tripod.com/hancrash.html

 

and an Isle of Wight crashes list...

 

http://daveg4otu.tripod.com/iowweb/iowc.html

 

 

Does such a list exist for Lincolnshire?

 

No idea - but if there is I haven't seen it - it would almost certainly be very large.
