Crash on July 1st 1952 in Germany
 
Hi all!
I'm doing investigations about crashed aircrafts in the area I'm living in the vicinity of Schweinfurt (Bavaria, Germany).
One crash is this one probably of a F-84 of 36. Fighter wing while practicing on the exercise area near Sulzheim which was called Schweinfurt Gunnery Range on July 1st 1952, a thursday, at about 13.45 clock. It is reported the F-84 took off at Fuerstenfeldbruck. The pilot parachuted safely to the ground. The aircraft crashed in the vicinity of an old middleage ruin near Handthal, which belongs to the community of Oberschwarzach. Is there any chance to find out what concrete unit this aircraft belonged to and who was the pilot?
Thanks in advance for all help and support.

Hi ,

Nothing in the SCRAMBLE book for the date you give.
But given as just August 1952, 49-2291 F-84E 36 FBG, no other info given. Is the month or year given correct ?
