Wartime aircraft crash Memorials

During the Second World War hundreds of aircrew were lost in accidents while training, landing, taking off or attempting to get back to their base with a badly damaged aircraft.
By creating this shared description and collecting them into one place I will not only pay tribute to the men who lost their lives in the line of duty but hopefully give some scale to the cost in lives.
These are just the ones who have a memorial; there are hundreds more who have no memorial or were lost at sea. They should not be forgotten. Their lives were equally precious.
In Honour of those who served and in Memory of those who fell.
