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

Battle of Britain. One of 11 American pilots who flew with RAF Fighter Command between 10 July and 31 October 1940, thereby qualifying for the Battle of Britain clasp to the 1939–45 campaign star.

On 12 July 1940, Fiske joined 601 Sqd RAF, a Hawker Hurricane unit, at RAF Tangmere, West Sussex, the so-called 'Millionaires' Squadron', carrying out his first sorties with the squadron on 20 July, when he flew two patrols. On 16 August 1940 601 Sqd scrambled to intercept a squadron of German dive-bombers. Fiske was flying Hurricane serial number P3358. The Squadron destroyed eight Junkers Ju 87 Stukas, but after just 15 minutes of flying time, a German gunner put a bullet through Fiske's fuel tank. With his aircraft badly damaged and his hands and ankles burnt, instead of bailing out, Fiske nursed his Hurricane home, gliding over a hedgerow to the airfield. Although he landed his aircraft safely back at Tangmere, Fiske had to be extracted from the aircraft by ambulance attendants. Shortly after, his fuel tank exploded. Fiske was taken to the Royal West Sussex Hospital in Chichester for treatment, but he died 48 hours later from surgical shock. Fiske was 29 years old.

Undoubtedly Fiske's premature loss denied him the success he would have achieved. Fiske's Flight Commander, Sir Archibald Philip Hope, 17th Baronet, added: 'Unquestionably Billy Fiske was the best pilot I've ever known. It was unbelievable how good he was. He picked up so fast it wasn't true. He'd flown a bit before, but he was a natural as a fighter pilot. He was also terribly nice and extraordinarily modest, and fitted into the squadron very well.'

son of Beulah and William Fiske (banking magnate). Fiske became the youngest gold medalist in any winter sport (not eclipsed until 1992), aged just 16 years at the 1928 Winter Olympics in St. Moritz, Switzerland

Paradie Archive DatabaseOnly two of the seven crew members survived. The 1st, Eli Molnar, was able to parachute and be hidden by the resistance. The second, David Yardley, was ejected on impact with the ground. Wounded, he was transported by villagers - on the tail of the plane - to be treated at the hospices. Found by the Germans, he will be taken prisoner of war. The Germans had initially found only two bodies in the aircraft cabin. Thinking therefore that a good part of the crew had been hidden, the Germans organised a raid in retaliation by arresting 22 Rebecquois. Deported to the Sachsenhausen camp, three never returned: Giovanni and Giuseppe Vechiatto as well as Louis Deneyer. (Hanger Flying)
