BF110 crash details, 1940 Battle of Britain

Hello,

Looking for information on a BF110 that i think came down during the Battle of Britain. All i have on it is it crashed at or near Canewdon , Rochford, England and i understand that parts of the aircraft were on display at the London Air Museum?

All help appreciated.

Hi Peter,

Yes that will be the one, does anyone happen to know if a MG15 was recovered from the crash site in the 1970's....the book says full armament was recovered but are they talking offensive only ?

Thanks

Jon
