    Was it 7-7-1945 ? Air Britain mentions 20-5-1945 (Swung on landing and undercarriage collapsed, Melsbroek). May have been repaired and again lost on B.58 Melsbroek later in July ?

    Indeed the incident took place on 20th of May 1945 as mentioned in ORB:
    "Crashed on landing at B.58 airfield - medical supplies and crew uninjured.
    Crew returned to base on A/C "Y" ".

    Not a word on any incident on 7th of July 1945 in ORB.

    Regards,
    Greg
