That is probably the incident in the back of my mind.

Though the 16th Entry of Boy Entrants attestation date was later, 22 May 52, during that summer, those of us at Yatesbury, went to Lynham for 'air experience' flights. My 1st two flights were in Ansons and my 3rd flight was in a Hastings, where we came across the rearward facing seats for the 1st time. We were regaled with how much safer they were and the survival rate at a 'recent' incident was used to illustrate the fact.

This was probably about 18 months after the TG574 incident.
