Re: Mustang Pilot Information

Thank you for restarting the investigation!

according to two witnesses the crash instead in the late morning, but can we trust their statements 76 years later?

is that the time of the crash or the time they saw the plane in the field, they don't know much themselves anymore

several witnesses say they saw the body, if it was Gompertz or would be his body since he is missing and without a grave

on my side I have nothing to advance this story, it's too bad

Re: Mustang Pilot Information

Good morning, everyone,

I just found this in a book

A plane on fire
At about 9 a.m., during this action, a fighter plane
between the hamlet of Bray and gouchaupré, near, after having
machine-gunned three trucks full of German soldiers.
The plane would get tangled in the telephone wires along the road,
and capsized.
The pilot was killed
