Narrative:
Hiller UH-12B G-AOFK seems to have had a very short working life. It was first registered (C of R R5019/1) to Air Service Training Ltd., Hamble, Hampshire on 8 June 1955

G-AOFK crashed at Hamble on 4 October 1955. As it was owned by Air Service Training, one assumes that its loss was in the course of a training flight. Its registration was cancelled thirteen days later - 17 October 1955 - as "destroyed or permanently withdrawn from use".
