Boleslaw Kaczmarek

This pilot (a veteran of 306, 316 and 302 Squadrons) was killed post war flying as an instructor for the Pakistan Air Force. Does anyone know which aircraft he was flying when he was killed in 1951?

Re: Boleslaw Kaczmarek

Yes, I not only know that he was flying a "Fury Aircraft" of RPAF but I also know that he was serving in 5 Fighter Squadron of RPAF and crashed near Maripur Air Base at Karachi, Pakistan; on 25 October 1951.........
Now would you not ask me how do I know all this??????
I know it, because on that date; two Fury Aircraft flew and Second Fury was being flown by my Eldest Brother Pilot Officer Syed Fazal Hussain Khurazmi.........
Wish to get in touch with any one of his relatives to share his picture that I have in my record (taken from my father).
My Email is shujahkhurazmi@hotmail.com and shujah_khurazmi@yahoo.com
Hope to hear back from you if you know any relative of this great Pilot........
Best Regards
Shujah Khurazmi, Pakistan

Hi Shujah

I've placed the info about your research on Polish aviation Forum. We'll see what it brings.

Re: Boleslaw Kaczmarek

His name prompted the question: where did the Luftwaffe term for wingman, i.e. Kaczmarek, come from?

Re: Boleslaw Kaczmarek

Kaczmarek is very popular surname in Poland, esp. in the Western part of it. So Germans use it like "John Smith" to express 'tipical Polish person'. Huge part of Poland belonged to the German Empire before 1918, so the had to have many Polish pilots in Imperial Aviation of Germany.
It makes us another problem: as I know from Mr. Shujah Khurazmi, Kaczmareks had no children... So now it would be very hard to find the familly of him still living in Poland (if there is any). Only way is by the Red Cross/Red Crescent bureau, I'm affraid.

I once read (unfortunately, I don't remember the source) that it had first been applied to Silesians serving in the Wehrmacht, only later did it come to be used in reference to wingmen.
