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

1944-09-15HalifaxIIINA629PT:WTholthorpe21:56KielThey bombed the at 01:19 hours from 1800ft before turning for home. On the return journey the hydraulic system failed, probably holed by Flak. The loss of hydraulics caused the flaps to lower followed by the undercarriage the the bomb doors. The wireless operator put out an SOS and despite attempts by the crew to rectify the situation, Motherwell was forced to ditching this highly dangerous configuration at 04:05 hours. They were 70 miles off the East Anglian coast. At times a search scene could resemble flies around a honeypot and this was the case during the search for Motherwell and his crew. Sqn Ldr Simpson in Hudson L/279 and Fg Off Garven in U/2279 were scrambled at 18:01 and 18:23 respectively. On arrival at the search area and they discovered three Lancasters and two Halifaxes, one of which was another 420 Sqn aircraft flown by Flt Lt E S Heimpel RCAF, circling two dinghies containing the seven survivors. The Hudsons dropped smoke floats to help mark the position and shortly afterwards a Walrus amphibian arrived and picked up the survivors. Sometime later an RML was homed to the area and the survivors were transferred to this from the Walrus. The RML then took the Walrus under tow and headed home.
