Re: 156 Squadron Lancaster crash


I'm doing some research into a pathfinder lancaster lost over Germany on the 31st of March 1945...on a sortie to Hamburg.

The crew and plane were part of 156 GT-O (PB517) and this was the second to last lanc to be lost by this squadron.

What I want to try and find out was why she came down...I'm assuming that since she was to the South West of Hamburg, that she may have been the victim of an enemy fighter....I've read that there were quite a few ME262s about...

Any help from German researchers would be very much appreciated....

cheers and a Happy New Year to all.
