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

First attempt to land failed- stalled and crashed while going around for second attempt. Two survivors parachuted to safety KilledFulwood (Christ Church) Churchyard Grave 605A Paradie Archive Database The Court of Inquiry found, in summary, that a combination of navigation errors and pilot error, probably because of the lack of confidence in the given circumstances, was the cause of the crash. The findings also recommended that the use of 'scratch crews', Sgt. Reilly volunteered to fly on this crew because the Bomb Aimer refused to fly again with the pilot, should be avoided unless in an emergency. Sgt. Reilly was of the opinion that more of the crew could have survived if the navigator had made no bones about jumping.
