I RESEARCH both military and civil aircraft crashes anywhere south of the River Tyne and in County Durham.

Can anyone remember a Slingsby T41 Skylark 2 glider, serial number BGA 793, which made a field landing somewhere near Whickham, Gateshead, on October 31, 1992, with damage to a wing?

Most likely this glider landed on high ground off Fellside Road and came from Northumbria Gliding Club based at Currock Hill.

Where exactly did this glider come down?

Any photographs would be copied and returned.

Many thanks.
