    Default Stirling N6010 lost 10./11.05.41

    Hello,
    In the spring I have found the exact crash site of Stirling N6010.
    I have found some parts.I'm looking for any information.
    The Stirling collided in the air with a Me 110,Fw Säwert NJG3. Both aircraft went down.
    Are there pictures of the crew?

    Kind regards

    Hello Volker,

    Thanks for the Bf110 pilots name. I have looked for a photo of Stirling N6010’s captain (F/Lt. Neville Williams NZ1068.) a New Zealander; there were several published in The Weekly News 3.7.40; 7.8.40; 20.11.47 21.5.41 I cannot locate any at the moment!
    I will keep trying

    Hi Guys
    From the nominal roll for 75(NZ) Squadron:
    WILLIAMS F/O Neville, DFC, RNZAF. (NZ1068) Pilot x Jul 1939 to 8 Sep 1940. Citation DFC Imm (31 Jul 1940): One night in July 1940. This officer was captain of an aircraft engaged in bombing operations in the Ruhr area. During the return flight his aircraft was attacked by three enemy aircraft and after a determined fight one and possibly two were shot down, the third being driven off. In spite of his aircraft being riddled with bullets Flying Officer Williams successfully brought it back to base. Since the beginning of the year he has taken part in twenty one attacks on Norway, Germany, Holland, Belgium and France, and has shown outstanding determination and an extremely keen sense of duty. He has displayed coolness, courage and real leadership in all the numerous operations he has undertaken. Later Flt Lt DFC, mid. MiD with 7(PFF)Sqn.

    I find it strange there is no reference to this incident if they both crashed as a result of the collision........

    Hello all,

    Any idea about the individual letter of N6010? It's not in the ORB and Stirling file, unfortunately.

    Regards,
    Hans Nauta
