    Default 1426 Enemy Aircraft Flight

    I have just managed to plot an air gunner being posted into 1426 EAC Flt in November 1942 and apparently serving until January 1945. Has anyone by chance AIR 29/868 ORB's or seen them to advise on content. I can only assume as an operational tour expired Air Gunner his service would have been on the Luftwaffe bombers connected to that interesting flight. Any observations on this unit will be most welcome. Thank you......

    Hello,

    A good starting point for research into No.1426 (Enemy Aircraft) Flight, is Chapter Two, of the following publication:

    War Prizes:An Illustrated History of German, Italian and Japanese aircraft brought to Allied countries during and after the Second World War.
    Butler,Phil.
    Earl Shilton:Midland Counties Publications,1994.
    pp.24-29.

    Thats a very good suggestion - I will seek a copy, you never know a picture just might throw up a connection. Thanks.
