As a result of this sub thread I decided to refresh my memory about Kegworth, and did a little delving around. I ended up in an email conversation with Peter Ladkin about the Accident. Peter was quite happy for me to post the mail to this newsgroup, however the conversation is a bit lengthy. So rather than post it what I will do is mail it to anyone who specifically wants it. Contact me by email if you would like a copy. Bill Chivers 'my other signature file has something funny at the bottom of it'
