Unfallbericht:
The Varsity was involved in a night time training flight. In the first session both pilots had carried out four circuits. After the next takeoff the airplane turned downwind. Probably because of other traffic in the circuit, the pilot attempted to take avoiding action. He lost control and the airplane crashed.
The airplane was serving with RAF 201 AFS.
