    Default Serial number of Blenheim of 82 Sqn

    On 2/8 1942 the 82 Sqn Blenheims V6042 piloted by WC Burt and Blenheim V6445 piloted by Sgt Hadland took off for a mission against shipping near Holland.
    Along with them was a third Blenheim.
    I am looking the serial number of that Blenheim along with the names of the crew.
    The code of both this Blenheim and V6445 would also be greatly appriciated.

    Thank you in advance.
    Best regards

    Hello Allan
    Yes you are right. Sorry about that.
    Thank you.
    I have been lucky to get a written statement from Hadland via his son on what happend during that trip. Hope to get it up on my site tomorrow.
    Do you by chance have the take off times for all five ?
