Alain,

Correct. Apologies for the confusion. I only searched for Limburg in my files, completely forgetting the adjoining provinces, Limburg (Netherlands), and Limburg (Belgium).

Re: Identify Wellington Bomber

Does anyone has found information (while searching information for this thread) about a Wellington which crashed at the Stalenstraat Waterschei (Genk Belgium). Believed it crashed in the night of 3/4 march 1945? Apparently it was hit from friendly fire stationed at Y-29.
