    Hi Stuart
    Welcome to the forum

    Might be an good idea to add any details as at the moment there are none at all

    Scan the Crash card so we have some idea of places involved.
    Aircraft, Serial Number and Date might be useful, plus any other information you have gathered so far.

    Bit puzzled about how an aircraft crash can be plotted so "it doesn't add up" with an airfield?

    As you may have already discovered if the crash is in UK the burial place of the pilot/crew could be in their home town or parish, rather than the nearest churchyard or CWGC cemetery to the crash site or the airfield he/they flew from.

    Yes but you havent given us any clue here no detail or the like except Culmhead

    You say your not putting info here why?

    If you want help then add more detail

    So to date you have the crash card for an incident that took place at [you wont tell us] on a date [you wont tell us] for an aircraft [you wont tell us] with a registration number [you wont tell us] and it was piloted by [you wont tell us]

    Hmm - if you wont tell us anything then why have you asked the question in the first place, and how are we supposed to answer questions when it seems you do not wish to provide any details at all

    As your post in the other thread

    Quote - "ok so need help anyone know of any info of a plane crash that happened near culmhead when it was first opened ive got the crash card which im not putting info on here was see if anyone else knows any diff" - Unquote

    Can I ask what is it you want help with ??

    the reason why i wont allow any information is my uncle is a aviation archo and i can give his name and he has been on the news he said try and not give much info away when asking people coz there are people about that will beat u to the site of the crash and they will take all credit

    You are playing a silly game of the chicken and the egg.

    A casual glance at this forum will see literally hundreds of replies to many aviation mysteries. Indeed, hundreds of mysteries have been solved.

    I'd bet you'd be hard pressed to find one member on this board who has "taken all credit" by assisting someone.

    I used to respect aviation archeologists for the work they carried out but... several of these have brought the subject into disrepute over the years seemingly going from being interested in the historical side, to more on the possible monetary gains, as artifacts from these digs can fetch sums of money from the right people. Might be a silly question but just out of interest, can I ask what your interest is in this crash site, and do you intend to excavate, and what is your uncle's name. I have to agree with comments above, how can people help if they are not given some sort of clue as what to look for.

    this forum is for people to share their interest and keep the period in the present.
    As stated by members we help either by supplying info and sometimes going out locally and doing some manual work.
    So its all about getting to the line first in this case
    Not actually Remembering the possible casualties

    Not good enough

    I have the answer:
    The plane crashed or something or nuffin, over there or something, coz it crashed yeah and it wasn’t there because it was definitely over there or something.

    You’re welcome.

    So in reality the ony question you have posed so far is below:

    In response to this one and only query that can be responded to I suggest 2 possibilities

    1. The crash card [unseen by anyone else here] if for a different crash to the one you are trying to identify

    2. Perhaps your plotting of the details/data on the crash card [unseen by anyone else here] is incorrect

    Until more details or data is available then it is impossible in my view for members of this forum to help or assist you in any way further

    I can already sense the content of some responses :unsure:

    Could I suggest to the moderators that unless the OP puts up the information requested you lock this thread? Otherwise it is pointless

    I think most now who read this thread realise there is no point in posting more until the OP provides details or data, whether that means locking it or just leaving to swim its natural course - I dont know and its so way above my pay grade - oooops I shouldnt have said that

    So, you want OUR help, but YOU'LL take ALL the credit?
    You've got a lot to learn about tact and not a lot more to learn about rubbing people up the wrong way.
    Is your uncle related to the Robin Hood at DAR&R?
    What will you do IF you find the crash site? Rob it for souvenirs?
    As they say in the Dragons Den - I'm out.........

    are you trying to figure out several miles south west versus three miles east of Church Stanton - if so there is an easier way.
