    The Operations Record Book for 27 OTU doesn't record a nickel sortie to Le Mans on the 7th August. There is record of a single aircraft carrying out a nickel to Le Mans on the 2nd and three of their aircraft carrying out a nickel to Tours on the night of the 6th.

    Hello Alan

    you are correct. I knew about Tours.
    The route that I place come from the navigator logbook entry.

    A little mystery,

    Best regards
    Rene
