    Default S/l j.c. Nelson (usa)

    Hello,

    S/L J.C. NELSON led 124 Sqn between Jan and Jun 43. In the ORB it is said that he was American. RAF or RCAF? Any details about this pilot would be appreciated.

    TIA

    Phil

    Hi Phil,

    Is this your man?

    The Mosquito incident mentioned in the text occurred on 19-3-1944, when Empire Central Flying School's FB.VI HJ665, crashed 1.5m SE of Hullavington aerodrome, after engine failure on approach.
