Only a P-47 doing a crash-landing in Metz on New Day 45

Most of the above list is from the USAAF Overseas accident report list available on the Web:

http://www.aviationarchaeology.com/s...y/Jan1945O.htm

Replace Jan1945 by the month you're interested in.

I'm working currenlty only on October 1944 and is gathering data over airlosses, but only in this time period.

11th October 1944 Auster loss

Thanks for the input.

This was an RAF/RCAF Loss from 443 Squadron.
The a/c was found in the Deurne area burnt out.

F/O L.P.E.Piche and F/O A.J.Horrell were both killed.

The only one that I think fits is Auster V NJ669 that in Air Brit NA100-NZ999 is noted as SOC on the 11-10-44 with 127 Wg.

Any other info welcome as someone else has said thet it was a captured Bu131 that they were in.

Alex

For RAF/RCAF losses, try the RAF Commands forum:

http://www.rafcommands.com/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboard.cgi

Some people here have extensive loss data
