Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk

* NOTE ON DATES: IMPORTANT: For consistency, the Date is given as the date the mission TOOK OFF since the precise time of a loss is not always certain. Take Off date is unambigous and fixed in the official records, but obviously in those cases where the incident occurred before midnight UK time, then the Take Off Date will be the same as the Incident Date. Of course, most Bomber Command missions flew through midnight, therefore a Luftwaffe claim against a plane - or a locally generated crash report - may record the incident as occurring on the day following our Take Off Date. Bear this in mind when cross-referencing to our Luftwaffe Victories by Name/Date Database and other Luftwaffe sources. In some cases other sources may quote the date following our date, using locally generated reports as their source. To add to the potential for confusion, remember to take into account a Luftwaffe recorded date will be in local time, 1 hour ahead of UK time. When we discover a validated Incident Date we change our record if necessary

1942-08-11WellingtonIIBJ830DX-EFeltwell2250MainzThe a/c crashed at 0330 hrs on the Philippshöhe above the Hagen central station. The pilot and the navigator, were still in the remnants of the completely destroyed cockpit. The rear gunner was hurled from the a/c by the force of the impact. The two other crew members were found in the wreckage during the following days by German soldiers, however because of their serious injuries and missing dog tags they could not be identified by name. The tail of the a/c remained relatively undamaged, while the remaining parts of the a/c were completely smashed on impact with the steep slope of the Philippshöhe. The a/c had not exploded on impact which is probably and indication of empty fuel tanks.
