Bristol Blenheim L1476

South African airmen Pilot Officer Stanley John Daly Robinson and Acting Pilot Officer Jack Elliott Thomas were both killed in the crash on 30 January 1939.

In Peakland Air Crashes – The North (2006), Pat Cunningham says the bodies of the airmen were found some distance back along the line of flight of the Blenheim, suggesting the men had baled out, but alas were too close to the ground to have chance to deploy their parachutes.
