On 19 April 1945 their Mosquito was shot down in error by another of the unit's aircraft, flown by a Belgian crew. The Belgians** and Young were all killed. But Fazan, like his pilot now a Flg Off, managed to bale out. Claims - 2 Destroyed See: Those Other Eagles/Shores p.668 * 1578262/(174237) Norman Guy FAZAN RAFVR ** Albert PETRISSE & Maurice LALOUX ?
