This was a fairly routine flight from Leicestershire to Glasgow, 24 July 1945. RAF Leading Aircraftman Main was a passenger.
The Dakota crashed on Jamesâ€™s Thorn, just metres away from where Lancaster KB993 had crashed a couple of months earlier. All crew members were killed. Much of the wreckage was pushed down the hill and into Ashton Clough, so that passing aircraft would not report it as a new crash.
