    Default Operation Exodus Crash in Belgium.

    Alain,
    Although I cannot help with the christian names of the crew,the Squadron O.R.B. has a somewhat different account of this incident.Firstly,it took place on 10 May 1945 and the aircraft crashed on landing at Wing airfield on its return from B.58 at 15.35.The crew and 24 ex P.O.W.s on board were all safe.
    Regards,Mark.

    The Polish Institute & Sikorski Museum in Princes Gate London, holds a copy of a book which which summarises the personal details and careers of all Polish Air Force personnel.

    For a donation (voluntary) they have helped me with some biographical information about several Polish personnel. You might be able to visit by appointment and do the research yourself.
