Hi Fenix,

search for www.lancasterbombers.net > Lancaster_Bombers > RAF Bomber Command Loss ... > 1st-5th March 1945 page 38. There you find the Loss Card of the Halifax NR180.
Then search for www.rafcommands.com/archive/09744.php. There is an article of RodM about the details of the crash behind the lines of the Russian front.

Regards
Leo
