Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk
This database consolidates all data previously held in our Fighter Command and Bomber Command databases and that held in our Polish Honour Roll database

* 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. Our date is always the Take Off date as this 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. (Earlier readers may remember we stated our date was the Briefing Date, but it is in fact the TAKE OFF date). 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 date we change our record if necessary

1943.06.18LancasterIED439OL:NRAF Wyton10:10Training- Day Practice BombingEye witnesses reported that an a/c was seen flying approx 200-400 ft in altitude in a nose-down attitude. Bdr. S.M. Bennett of 445 Battery, 65th Searchlight Reg. at Helpringham Post heard an a/c roar over his hut and a few seconds later heard and felt a violent explosion. He immediately rode to the scene on his bicycle and found an a/c completely disintegrated and on fire in a cornfield. A Mr. W.C. Chamberlain, the farmer of Highgate Farm, Scredington, Lincs saw three a/c circling in formation. The wing of one a/c hit some buildings which was immediately followed by an explosion and fire. The other two a/c were two unidentified Airspeed Oxfords.

Examination of the wreckage showed that the starboard wing hit a farm building, and tore off the roof of an unoccupied building scattering the disintegrating a/c over a swath of land 400-500 yards by 30 yards. The only means of identification was via an RR Merlin engine plate.
