    Default ABH Aeromilitaria look up, please

    I am looking for two entries in the Crashsite of the UK list, that seem to have been listed before I joined A-B.
    - 16.04.42 non-operational Spitfire crash, pilot safe, unit either 53 OTU or 403 Sqn
    - 22.08.42 non-operational Spitfire crash, pilot safe, unit either 53 OTU or 403 Sqn

    If you have the relevant issues in your files, I would greatly appreciate the details.

    Regards

    Hi Mikkel

    There are 5 Spitfires on 16.4.42 but none seem to fit your description: BL433/131Sq; BM115/313Sq; BM478/6FPP; AB255/129Sq and AD193/129Sq.

    There are no Spitfires listed 22.8.42.

    Phil and Col
    Spot on! I am convinced that the two Spits in question are K9799 and P8784.
