The Meopham Air Disaster - 21st July 1930

(1/3) > >>

Riding With The Angels:
Looking at the 1940 era map and current aerial view it appears the curved area top left is a good bet (west of A227)

Hi, I haven't lived that long in Meopham and you are right I cant find anybody who is aware of the crash. Is anybody able to pinpoint the site on a map.

Thanks

Andy

Despite it being named Singapore Pages it has loads of UK stuff.  http://newspapers.nl.sg/Default.aspx   

I just typed in Meopham, Kent and it came up with numerous articles on the disaster.

Hi Ann - I recently stumbled across that site as well. Lots of interesting stuff on there. The Meopham disaster was reported worldwide at the time due to the high profile nature of the victims. Funny that nowadays if you asked someone who lived in Meopham about it they probably wouldn't know what you were talking about.

I have been kindly given permission to post pictures of the two pilots by The Royal Aero Club Trust who contacted me after reading this thread.
