    David I'm in Bristol. My research has been very much a broad brush approach, seeking to put most of the elements in and then perhaps tweaking what I have by the addition of more detail as and when it becomes available. All my data has come from published sources, I read the books and pull out the plums so to speak.

    Leendart, the Hurricane loss is mentioned in US Losses but with no detail. ABS records that it was repaired and went on to serve with 41 OTU with which untit it crashed on approach at Cranage 31/3/44.

    Paul Thanks for the info on the Whirlwind pilot.

    regards

    Default Hurricane

    Hi Dave, thats the miracle of the internet (in part). I thought you were local!
    This aircraft started service with 1423 Flight,then 24 Squadron,on to USAAF,and then to 41OTU,where as you say it crashed when trying to force land at Crannage,near Manchester on the 31st;March 1944.

    It has been asked as to why was this hurricane was in use in combat in '43, any ideas or suggestions anyone please?

    Dave
