Title AVRO Anson Crash
Date 9th April 1963
Location Carlton
Photo ID F383
Comment This is the wreckage of an Avro Anson k11, registration G-ALXH which crashed into a field at Carlton on April 9th 1963.

The aircraft was owned by BKS Survey, on board were Captain Ronald Fox who was the pilot, John Symington the navigator and Malcolm Budd a photographer. Malcolm was aged 16 and it was his first flight, all three men escaped from the crash unharmed.
The pilot had suspected that one of the two engines was on fire and shut it down but this type of aircraft was not designed to fly on one engine only consequently the crash occurred.
Immediately after the accident Captain Fox left the scene and did not return, an investigation found that both engines were in order.
