Détails:
Fokker F.XII G-AEOT crashed in the early hours of 19 November 1936 into trees on Pound Hill, Tilgate Forest, approximately seven miles south of Gatwick Airport. It was upside down and extensively damaged, with the fuselage completely broken up. The pilot,
Flt Lt Arthur Patrick Kilvington Hattersley (aged 36) together with the second pilot/first officer Capt Verner John William Bredenkamp (aged 33), were both killed.
The AAIB Inquiry decided that the accident was caused by the pilot making an error of judgement in that he hadn't taken into account that the very strong NE wind would greatly widen his low altitude turn, causing the Fokker to drift off course and hit the high ground.
