Botha Mk.I W5103 of No.7 FPP RAF crashed on Round Hill, Bleaklow 10th December 1941
|Thomas William Rogers||First Officer||Pilot||Killed|
The aircraft was lost whilst on a ferry flight from Blackburn’s factory at Sherburn-in-Elmet near Leeds to Harwarden near Chester. The pilot was attempting to fly above the cloud which covered the hills and it is thought he was descending thinking that he had cleared the hills but a head wind may have slowed his progress and therefore meant he was still over the hills as he descended. The aircraft struck the moorland and the aircraft was destroyed.
