Belgium Meteor Collision 15 Dec 1953

On 15 Dec 1953 Belgium Meteors EG-231 and EG-232 of 349 Sqn collided at Rêves/Frasnes-les-Gosselies

https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/48016

and

https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/48029

The pilots involved were Onderluitenant Marc Desender who ejected and survived and Sgt. Mathieu Penders who died

I assume Desender was flying EG-231 and Penders EG-232 but can anyone supply confirmation and maybe full names and service numbers if possible?

Thanks

Paul

Paul,


Indeed, Desender in EG-231 and Penders in EG-232. See e.g. http://www.sergebonfond.be/index.php...wing-1950-1955 and better still http://ailes-militaires-belges.be/in...&limitstart=20


Also see https://www.hangarflying.eu/erfgoeds...thieu-penders/


No real tradition here to cite full (baptism or otherwise) names.



Regards,


Leendert

Paul,


More Dutch Meteor collisions here: https://www.ipms.nl/artikelen/nedmil...gloster-meteor


Look for 'botsing' (= collision).


One near by my present hometown was on 9 July 1957 between I-202 and I-223...

Leendert
