His wingman pulled up as they started through an undercast and barely escaped the same fate.

Bill, your remark about Nealīs crash location near Rathenow is most interesting. Can you tell me more about source? Itīs not part of Nealīs MACR, isnīt it?

cheers

Jan - the Macr 4547 has references "30 miles west of Berlin" and 30 miles sw of Berlin (Fritts Witness report). The 354 FS history mentions 'near Rathenow'.

I see, I am aware of this one. I have another report indicating where was his wreck found, a place about 100 miles west of Rathenow. Let me contact you off-board.

Best regards
