I was pleased to see this series of UK accidents continue. I have not done a comprehensive review but I found a few necessary corrections affecting C-47 and C-54. 24Nov43 42-190498 is not a C-47 serial. This certainly will refer to 42-100496 that crashed Torbay, Newfoundland, Canada on this date. 23Dec43 43-60733 is not a C-47 serial. It should be 43-30733. 8Feb44 42-92052 According to the DC-3 book the accident was indeed Rockbourne Down, Wilts 4Mar44 42-12770 is a Lockheed F-5A that crashed on this date at Welford. This most likely refers to C-47 42-100586 of the 437TCG that crashed Ramsbury on this date. 12Aug44 42-19657 is a Bell P-39Q that crashed in Panama on the 13th. This most likely refers to C-47 43-47992 of the 440TCG that crashed Marlborough on the 12th. 8Oct44 42-7249 is not a C-54. I suspect this really refers to C-54 42-72249 that crashed near St Mawgan on the 18th; this is included in the file. 2FRG was based at New Castle Army Air Force Base, Delaware.
Stig... I might be wrong but I think you'd have to convert the PDF back into a Word document (free online , Google Convert PDF to Word) then insert corrections and convert back online sometime via Convert Word to PDF

However I only have an Acrobat reader and clicking on "Edit" all I get is a continuation to work with Adobe Reader DC for quite a bit of money (per month)
I was hoping that someone from the Editorial Team would get the hint (or at least send a message to the original author) and update the piece. As it is now, we will have a story which is basically Air Britain's view on the topic published on our internal web page "for ever" while any/all corrections will be lost/drowned in time, since 10 years from now nobody will look for any corrections here.
At risk of boring other readers, you are Clicking on the wrong EDIT ! Click Edit at the top left of the page (where you have File, Edit, View, Window) and you will then see the bits that I mentioned. I agree that the Edit etc to the right of the Adobe screen will take you to the pay areas !
The problem of out-dated or not updated applies to most websites. Here in a-b there are a number of files which have been donated/input by members which are out of date. Since they do not have a link to the editor it is impossible to send corrections - hopefully this will be addressed if we get a new discrete website!
Can I suggest rather than individuals making changes the "master copy" document and to enable clear tracking any changes and avoid corruption with potentially erroneous data, we should start a separate thread with a clear name e.g. "Corrections to (document name) such as Crashes in South West England.
The Master Copy owner (or through a designated deputy) can then control changes and update the Master Copy document accordingly. Updates can then be notified to the thread.
