Martin Slater wrote"I started work at Yorkshire Light Aircraft Ltd at Leeds/Bradford Airport on 8th April 1963 as an apprentice straight from school.
One of my first jobs on that day was to sit in the pilots seat of Anson G-ALXH and activate the brake lever whilst someone below did some adjustments. I was very excited by this as you can imagine a 15 year old lad would be.
The next day it crashed at Guiseley and I was involved in the dismantling and transporting of the wreck back to the airfield.
