Archaeology Notes

NH64NE 8016 c. 68 47

N57 30.0 W4 12.0

NLO: Longman Point [name: NH 669 476]

Inverness [name: NH 665 455].

Possibly on map sheet NH74NW.

(Classified as De Havilland DH84 Dragon 1: registration cited as G-ACGK, and date of loss as 8 January 1935). This aircraft crashed on take-off from Longman Airport. Capt. Coleman. All gone, but constructive total loss.

Registration: British.

(Location of loss cited as N57 33.0 W4 5.0).

I G Whittaker 1998.

The location assigned to this record is essentially tentative. That cited by Whittaker is evidently incorrect, apparently as a result of a confusion between the airfields at Longman (NH64NE 171.00: centred NH 6700 4650) and Dalcross (NH75SE 21.00: centred NH 77497 52093).
