The pilot was flying a number of the staff from the No.16 (Polish) Flying Training School base at Newton in Nottinghamshire to RAF Millom on the Cumbrian coast. While in cloud the aircraft struck the ground on Edale Moor and over turned. four of those onboard received minor injuries but none were seriously injured, after they were led off the hill they were transferred to the RAF Hospital at Wilmslow for treatment before being returned to Newton.
After the crash the wreckage was broken up, later in 1955 after a request from the recently formed Peak District National Park the crash sites on Kinder and the surrounding area were again visited by an RAF recovery team, from No.34 MU at Stoke Heath in Shropshire, they spent much of that summer cutting up and disposing of wreckage. It is believed that this aircraft is one which was visited during that or the following summer.
