W0245715 appears to be the "type" of co-ordinate discussed on this site:

http://www.echodelta.net/mbs/eng-welcome.php

except the format would be wO245715 for the Nord de Guerre grid, and when you use the translator on the above website you end up at
Latitude : 50° 06' 04'' N
Longitude : 10° 52' 42'' E
which is nowhere near the actual crash site.

Some of the co-ordinates for other losses on the link you found do seem the check out using the "echodelta" site on the appropriate grid map, so I am not sure where they went wrong on Pines.

How about if it was WQ not WO ? Would that be a closer match ?
Perhaps an early typo error or type ribbon was drying up and it then looked to be an "O" ?

You know his date of death, but does anyone have his date of birth?

i did some more research to the coordinates:

wO245715 is wrong ...
it must be wW245715 and this was the launch site,
wW320654 is correct and this was the crash site!!

it's mysterious, there's so much wrong!?


regards
