Auster (Autocar?) - Boston

As a child I remember in the early 50s (I guess) a fatal accident of an Auster at an airshow at Boston, Lincolnshire. The aircraft was being demonstrated and it stalled and crashed into the bank of a drain beyond the end of the grass runway. (I believe that it had been doing a very low speed flypast).

It was the first and only aircraft accident that I ever saw and it left a strong impression as both occupants were killed.
