The Farnborough disaster, 1952

Farnborough disaster 1952
This was the scene on our favourite hill at Farnborough (see picture from the previous year) shortly after the crash of the DH110.  As explained in Chapter 3, I was very fed up about missing the show that year, until I was shown pictures like this in the papers next day.

This picture was kindly emailed to me by Kenneth Johanssen.
