1943 April 2 Crash Of Aircraft Shot By Flak

Near St Père en Retz (France) an allied aircraft (RAF I suppose) crashed shotting by flack. All the crew (5) died in the crash. I have not other indications.

Other crash in the same area :
night of 1941 feb 4 /feb5, I noted the crash of a RAF aircraft with 4 members of crew. All were killed in the crash


I am interested in all informations about the both events. Have you a few informations ?

Thank you very much.

Hi,

what I could find in the vicinity of St. Père en Retz between St. Nazaire and Nantes:

4.2.41 17h30: RAF Hampden Mk. I, No. 106 Sqn, ZN - ?, AD750, Sgt. J L Franco, crashed near Nantes, crew killed

2.4.43 20h07: RAF Lancaster Mk. I, No. 57 Sqn, DX - ?, W4257, P/O R L Pickup, crashed near St. Nazaire, crew killed

Hope that helps

Cheers
