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

1944-06-06SpitfireVW3843ShorehamCover D-Day landingsMissing off Utah Beach
From the dawn of June 6, the Halifaxes of the Guyenne group bombarded the German coastal defenses of Maisy, which covered the sectors of Omaha Beach and Utah Beach. Shortly after, the Lorraine group spread a smokescreen to blind the enemy. But one of the unit's Douglases did not return from this audacious and dangerous mission: Second Lieutenant Canut (navigator) and Sergeants Boissieux (pilot) and Henson died there. Several FAFL units were engaged during this day [as well as the 15 French pilots detached within Royal Air Force squadrons, such as ace Pierre Clostermann or the future General Jacques Andrieux]. Thus, the Île-de-France, Alsace, Cigognes and Berry hunting groups participated in operations in the skies of Normandy. Berry's Spitifires took off from their base in Shoreham in the early hours of Operation Overlord to provide air cover for Utah Beach. One of them was piloted by Lieutenant Jacques Joubert des Ouches.
