    It was with 233sqdn at time of oOperation Tonga in 44, so still may have been with the squadron in Jan 45

    The aircraft was written off on 24 April 1945 at Rheine (B108). The port engine failed but the aircraft overshot a single engined landing, ran into a bomb crater and was badly damaged. Its crew survived without injury.

    The aircraft was still on 233 Sqn
