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

Ground attack mission on positions near Col de Tende, in the Alpes-Maritimes, crashes. He is killed.

Captain Jean-Marie Auber: disappeared in the prime of life Born on July 23, 1918, Captain Auber was admitted to the Air School at the age of 20 with the class of 1938 "Lieutenant-colonel Mailloux". A particularly brilliant student, he obtained his pilot's license in November 1939. After a training course at the Montpellier hunting school, he was appointed to serve in French West Africa and landed in Dakar in December 1940 with the 1/4 "Navarre" hunting group. Promoted lieutenant in September 1941, he left Dakar in April 1943 with his group and moved to North Africa. Squadron commander, appointed to the rank of captain in June 1944, he moved with his unit to Folleli, Corsica, in July 1944.

On September 1, 1944, he was ordered to attack an enemy division command post at Airole, Italy. Followed by his teammates, Captain Auber shows up to attack the objective, he takes a very steep dive, shoots and initiates a resource. Hit by enemy defenses, the aircraft then rolled slowly to the right in a slight nose-down, then turned and struck the terrain; it immediately catches fire and explodes. Captain Auber is killed instantly. He totaled 920 flight hours and 125 war missions. Cited on the order of the Air Force with the award of the Croix de Guerre with palms, he was posthumously made a Knight of the Legion of Honor. On September 25, 1990, the 943 air base took the traditional name "Captain Auber". On this occasion, a plaque sealed in the redoubt of the Fort du Mont Agel was unveiled by General Chollet. The 943 air base thus honors the memory of this combat pilot who died on the battlefield in September 1944 at Airole in the Roya valley.
