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

It was first thought that it had been shot down near Rangoon. After hostilities ceased villagers from Kyaungyi, near Pegu, described seeing an aircraft coming from the direction of Rangoon and then disintegrate at position 17 20N, 96 40E (Thanatpin, Burma). No enemy activity appeared to be involved in the loss. The two crewmen were thrown out of the aircraft as it broke up and were buried where they fell, in adjacent paddy fields 1/2 mile from the village. It seems likely that the Mosquito suffered from a catastrophic structural failure.

All Mosquito operation in SEAC was halted on the 12th November after a series of crashes through structural failures. It was thought the problem was do to with the climatic conditions affecting the glue used in the manufacture of the aircraft. After inspections operations commenced again.
