Re: Hawker Hind mid air collision over Staplehurst Kent

The only incident I have that may be related is the collision between K6648 and K4638 (21 Squadron) which is recorded "near Lympne" on 29 May 1937. Might be worth a local newspaper trawl for that date? Its a bit of a way from Lympne, though, but may be the one. If it was a pair of Hinds I can at the moment find no other contenders.

Nice work--thank you for sharing-
Thanks so much for this. I appreciate the effort. It really helps a lot.
Glad to hear you're using this: I plan to keep it much more aggressively up-to-date than has been the case in the past, but don't hesitate to let me know if you find errors or need clarifications.
