    Default aircraft wreck 27 March 1944

    On 27 March 1944, [at 1200] Convoy CU-18 investigated an aircraft wreck at sea (47-29N; 23-06W) SW of Ireland.

    Aircraft had RAF markings. NO sign of the pilot. No idea of how long the wreck had been there.

    does this ring a bell for anyone?

    I am trying to ID the aircraft and the pilot and his fate if at all possible.

    Air Britain is publishing a list of UK crashes during WW2 and currently ends at March 27, 1944 (There may be a few more entries next publication ?)

    From this Anson MG395 of 2 OAFU is noted as being abandoned over Bowhill Farm, Dundrod, Co Down, could it have flown on and landed in the sea ?

    Also same date a pair of 1847 sqdn (FAA) Hellcats collided over Tullybrisland, Northern Ireland but can probably be ruled out.
