    Default "You are going to be a FLIGHT ENGINEER"

    This month's edition of one of the war magazines carries a supplement entitled "Bomber Command - The Crews".

    In the section about Flight Engineers it has a picture of the front of the pamphlet "You are going to be a FLIGHT ENGINEER".

    Before I ask RAF Hendon, does anyone happen to have a copy of the pamphlet in their collection?

    Regards

    Pete

    Pete,
    Not what you are looking for but found an online logbook you might be interested in - a F/E trained at St. Athan then 1663 HCU then ops at 51 Squadron (looks like he completed his tour). The scrolling pages make it a little difficult to analyze but you might be able to get a pdf copy from their webmaster.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the link; it makes interesting reading, particularly as I have Link Trainer Exercises on my research list at the moment.

    As you are probably aware, Flight Engineers had no flight training prior to their arrival at HCU, so I am keen to find out how much Link Trainer work they did whilst at St Athan [1943/1944]. Sadly, I do not have the log book for the FE that I am researching.

    The log on the site is a little confusing as the Link Training is dated 1947, with the rest of the log dated 1943, so I will have to have a look in more detail to see if I can get to grips with why this is.

    Regards

    Pete
