Gray’s design for this memorial window commemorates the lives of those lost in the Langenbruck bus crash, 11 February 1985, when a double-decker bus carrying 40 musicians from the band of Royal Air Force Germany, crashed on an autobahn between Nuremberg and Munich. Twenty-one of the occupants were killed in the crash. As the text in the design remembers: this window is ‘In memory of our friends of the Band of the Royal Air Force Germany who lost their lives in the tragic Autobahn accident near Munich on 11 February 1985’.
