Sturtivants FAA Aircraft 1939-1945

Wenyon Corsair JS748
Norcott Corsair JS713
Collided over airfield while changing formation at 4,500 ft. JS713 spun in.

Very oddly, both aircraft had had an taxying accident 12 Apr 1945, different pilot on JS713 that day and JS748 was stationary.

And JS713 had again ground collided with another Corsair again before that on 14 Jan 1945.
