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



Owing to a restriction placed by our hosting service, searches cannot be made on less than 4 characters. Searching on 3 or less will produce no results even though the name IS in our database. If you seek info on a name with less than 4 characters, EMAIL with name and database to search and we will perform the search manually for you.
We are working on techniques to mitigate this restriction.

1942-07-23HalifaxIIW7769LQ-KPocklington37DuisburgJust before 0500 the a/c was in the circuit of Pocklington airfield prior to landing when the port outer engine failed. This failure was due to a coolant leak which led to the engine overheating. Around the moment the engine caught fire the flight engineer assumed that the failure was down to a fuel supply shortage to the engine so switched the fuel cocks that supplied the fuel to both port engines. This resulted in the port inner engine's fuel supply being cut off. The a/c swung, and the port wing dropped causing a loss of control resulting in the a/c diving into the ground. It crashed into houses and then the school on New Street in Pocklington.
