    This incident occurred on 26 April 1955.

    The aircraft involved was a Vickers Varsity. As well as the pilot, four people on the ground were also killed.

    "Nick Aguani" in the text should read Nanik "Nick" Agnani.

    jJe suis le petit fils de Mme Henriette gogneaux tuée par le crash en 1955.
    jJe recherche des documents sur le crash et je ne retrouve pas dans les journaux de l’époque la mention \'\'crash d\'avion \'\' mais catastrophe de Vicq. Après plusieurs investigations je pense que l\'avion fut abattu par la chasse Anglaise au dessus de Vicq.
    Secret défense?
    En savais vous plus pour continuer mes recherches?
