    "Haxley" should read Haxey. It's in North Lincolnshire, rather than North Yorkshire.

    The crash occurred on 12 January 1931.

    The plane involved was a Vimy Jupiter, Serial No. F9168X.

    Hi jamied - this is really interesting. We've had no luck finding information about this crash - can anyone confirm?

    Finally, although the newspaper report of the crash isn't visible, it is referenced on this page here......

    The aircraft number may need changing to F9168 - that number is visible in the other clip, at around 00:12.
