Gerald Dunham Massy
The pilot and passenger were on a pleasure flight from Milfield in Northumberland, having taken off at 09:55 on the 17th September 1966. They had flown out over Carlisle and then down into the Lake District, the aircraft had flown south down Borrowdale and continued on towards the south when it struck a large rock near Esk Hause which tore the starboard wing off and caused the aircraft to plough into the ground near by killing both occupants.
