His wingman pulled up as they started through an undercast and barely escaped the same fate.
Bill, your remark about Neal´s crash location near Rathenow is most interesting. Can you tell me more about source? It´s not part of Neal´s MACR, isn´t it?

cheers

Re: Most One Sided Luftwaffe Victory over the 8th Air Force

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'.

Re: Most One Sided Luftwaffe Victory over the 8th Air Force

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
