    Default Mosquito HJ711 loss, 15-16 March 1944

    Hello,

    Duirng the night of 15-16 March 1944, the Mosquito II HJ711 of 169 Sqn RAF took off at 2210 from Little Snoring for an Intruder sortie over Europe. It crashed near Neu-Moresnet, Belgium, close to the German frontier.

    I would like to know the hour of the crash and the cause of the loss, if they are known. One crew survived and was captured (I have the crew details).

    Thanks in advance

    Laurent

    Hi Laurent
    I do not know whether I'll help. Accident HJ711 on http://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/wiki.php?id=72199.
    Do you know the number (military) and the first name of F / Lt W.W. FOSTER (pilot) RCAF?
