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

1942-09-01HalifaxIIW1248DY-OPocklington2329SaarbruckenOn the return flight the starboard outer engine failed due to a coolant leak. Although they had made it back to Yorkshire the remaining three engines failed before a landing could be made at Pocklington, and a forced landing was made in a field near Low Catton, to the S of Stamford Bridge at 05:30 and all on board survived.Survived - Died Wolverhampton 2001.Some of the crew walked to nearby East Farm owned by Mr Fred Lane. It was found that at the time of this incident the pilot had a habit of flying with the revs on the engines higher than normally recommended, this, combined with the flight engineer having set the petrol cocks incorrectly supplying fuel to the working engines had resulted in the available fuel in the tanks selected running out. The pilot very capable and this incident did not detract from his flying for which he was later awarded the DFC. After assessment of the a/c it was deemed beyond repair although the engines were taken away for re-use or stripping down for spares

During the night of June 9 to 10, 1944, fourteen airmen of the Royal Air Force died on mission in Entrammes and Saint-Berthevin. Two stelae will be erected in honor of these allied fighters.

The story translated from French ( June 1944. Entrammes aerodrome was at the heart of the fighting from the first days of the D-Day landings. On the night of the 9th to the 10th, 10 Squadron of the Royal Air Force Bomber Command, whose motto is Rem Acu Tangere ("I hit the target") is assigned to carry out a mission. Having left Melbourne in Yorkshire, England, he had to bomb Laval aerodrome. Two German squadrons of Focke-Wulf Fw 190 fighter bombers are stationed there.
It's 00:15 hrs “It's still a full moon. It offers excellent visibility on the objective, ”specifies Honorary Battalion Commander Jean-Louis Cholet, President of the Laval Committee for French Remembrance. A wave of 25 bombers is about to release their bombs. Arriving on a NW axis, even before the attack, one of the aircraft fell victim to German flak. MZ532, a four-engine Handley Page Halifax III, was hit at Saint-Berthevin (on the site of the current La Girandière residence) by a flak post. The bomber drops its bombs near the wood of L'Huisserie (near the current agricultural school) before crashing in flames at Le Pont-Alain, in Saint-Berthevin.

It is 00:21 hrs. On board seven men: an Australian, the pilot, and six Britons are killed. “They didn't have time to jump. They crashed in 20 to 30 seconds. The bodies of the navigator Henderson and the machine-gunner Wicks, horribly mutilated, were buried in the same coffin, continues Jean-Luc Peslier, president of the Mayenne friendly of the Air Force. Since the target is not large, we can assume that the attack took place at medium altitude. This could explain why the crew could not jump before the crash.

"The other 24 bombers continued their mission. They hit the airfield which becomes a building site. In the attack, a second Halifax, MZ 684, was hit by the German defence. It is 00:30 hrs. “It descends at the southern exit of the village of Entrammes in a field behind the farm Les Poiriers. The crew, five British and two Canadians, are wiped out. “Their bodies were collected by local farmers under duress from the Germans who did not want to disperse. Only the bodies of the pilot and the mechanic were identifiable. The fourteen airmen of the Royal Air Force have since rested in the Vaufleury cemetery.

The captain elected to make an emergency landing. The aircraft eventually came to rest in an open field near Loevestein Castle at Gorinchem Netherlands. Believed to have been written off as damaged beyond repair, the aircraft was salvaged by the Germans after the emergency landingPow No. 25685 Stalag 344 LamsdorfOn the evening of the 5th Sep 1942 the Stirling was flown to Gilze Rijen were it landed at 2000 hours. The next morning at 0515 hrs the Stirling took off again for a flight of about 1 hour. A Junkers Ju88 made "attacks" on the Stirling. In the afternoon of the 18th Sep 1942 the Stirling took off, accompanied by a Dornier Do-217 (KG-2) and left for Germany, Probably to "Die Erprobungsstelle" at Rechlin. The a/c was photographed by the German propaganda magazine Signal when its flying days were over. Three of the engines had been removed, and it appeared to be in the far corner of Rechlin, having suffered another crash landing and was presumably scrapped
