Re: Friendly fire WWII

I cant remember the details but i am sure another member will !
A USAF Mosquito with a high ranking officer on board flew in a raid to observe the bombing over Europe.
I think as the formation was attacked by Luftwaffe fighters they flew into the formation for protection a Twin engined aircraft often not seen by US gunners was shot down within seconds. I think the US officer and his pilot survived.
