Possible NATO A/C crash near Haguenau (France) in 1955

Hello,
I'm looking for information about a "supposed" NATO aircraft crashed "in flame" near or between Pechelbronn and Gunstett in North-East of France, not so fare from the German border and Strasbourg city.
According to my contact and a newspaper, the pilot was killed after its plane crashed nearby an oil well.

Thanks in advance for your help
Best regards
Franck

Hello,
I found an additional info: the pilot could have been a Canadian one. On the 2sd of September 1955, Flying Officer Edward Stewart Oliver died at Haguenau. He was belonging to 413th RCAF Fighter Squadron.

Best regards
Franck

This gives the serial number of Oliver's plane as 23108.

Hello,
Thanks a lot for this information I also Food on the same website.
413th squadron ORBs are here https://heritage.canadiana.ca/view/o...3/1833?r=0&s=1

It is clearly written the pilot did not recover from a spin resulting from a dog fight.

Best regards
Franck
