I have the Accident Record cards for the two aircraft concerned. Flt/Sgt Cresswell was on board 518sqdn Halifax LL186, which collided with another of the squadron's aircraft, Halifax LL296, flown by P/O N.D.T. Turner. Both aircraft were on flight tests prior to an operational flight. The accident lead to a "Control Zone" scheme being used more frequently, with only one aircraft being airborne in it at any one time.
If you would like copies of the reports, you will have to get your email address to me.
