    Default Chorleys BC Losses 1944

    Does this book list details of aircraft lost in the UK?

    Help appreciated.

    Thanks for response, Alan, I think I have established with reasonable certainty that FIDO was operational on take off. I live about 2 miles from crash site and have traced some youngsters (at the time) who remember the incident. I hope to get more from them!I think you have my mail address if anything interesting comes up in your notes.
