Loss of 77 Sqn Halifax (KM-A LK667) 15 Mar 1944 Amiens/LongueauOn 15 March 1944 at 1812 hours Halifax (KN-A LK667) takes of RAF Station Elvington for Amiens. At about 2200 hours the aircraft crashes 500 meters north of Longueau. Different documents characterize the place as either a swamp or in front of the railway station (guess its one of the two, rather than both). The aircraft is completely broken up when hitting the ground. Every part of the crew was KIA J10600 Flying Officer Peter Charles Edwards (pilot captain) 1044703 Sergeant Robert John Service (flight engineer) J24010 Flying Officer Archibald Edgar Guthrie (navigator) J26545 Flying Officer John Duncan (air bomber) 1323374 Sergeant Douglas William James Smith (wireless operator) R183245 Sergeant John Norgaard (air gunner, Dane) 926349 Sergeant Eustace Henry Orchard (air gunner Most sources that I have come a across states that the aircraft crashed for unknown reasons. I had the chance of going through Norgaard’s service record some days ago. A document herein states that "...a signal received from B.P.S.O. stated Halifax IX LK.667 and another heavy bomber collided in mid air and crashed..." Going though BCL lists of losses on this day a possible candidate could be 77 S, Halifax KN-Z LL229, but I have not found sources confirming this. Would anyone have information/suggestions regarding the fate of LK667? Regards Mikkel Plannthin ....Read More.Mikkel Plannthin on 21st August 2010 05:08:55
