Re: 1st Air Commando Group - April 1944 - Burma -gliders

This article I found may be helpful too with regard to the glider/tug operations on 5 March 1944: http://worldatwarmagazine.com/wp-con...mparticle1.pdf

Haven't reread it in full, but I'm sure the numbers will add up.

Regards,

Leendert

Re: 1st Air Commando Group - April 1944 - Burma -gliders

Hello Leendert,
Many thanks for sharing the part article with us.
It explains the event from the start including each recorded Glider loss in the first part of the event. From how I read it the later Gliders did not take to the air until the morning of the 6th.
So the Glider you seek MUST be among those mentioned in the text.Numbers of C47 & CG-4's are noted also losses .
Sadly you have only provided a part of the story, how about the rest please ?
Many thanks
Alex

Thank you for the information, it looks like all the tow planes were from 1st Air Command. I was fishing for the involvement of one of the Combat Cargo squadrons but it seems not this time.
