    Default 9 Sq Wellington accident 26-27/02/1941

    Hi all,

    I wouldlike to ask if anybody can identified a Wellington + crew which landed at East Wretham and when they founded where they are they wanted back to Honington. They did not wait for permission to start, nearly collided with a Wellington of 311 Sq which just landed and finally bumped into a Blenheim which crashlanded in East Wrteham about 2,5 months ago (BTW the identity of this Blenheim is also interesting for me).

    Thanks in advance for any details

    Pavel,

    From details taken from No.3 Group Operations Records Book.

    Wellington Mk.Ic T2620

    2330hrs

    Wretham Satelite

    Captain Sgt Donnelly 740236
    2nd pilot Sgt Peatfield 742702
    Obs Sgt Lennard 743003
    Wop Sgt Lang 747927
    F/G Sgt Church 944072
    R/G Sgt Clarice A/401035

    Wellington was taxing towards flare path for take off and struck stationary Blenheim N3618 No.21(B) Squadron. No injuries to the crew.


    The No.3 Group HQ Records Book records the following...

    Wellington T2620 of No.9 (B) Squadron struck Blenheim when taxing towards flare path and was damaged.

    Oh many thanks Steve!
    It is briliant, I do not believe ever that I will have so many details.

    Pavel

    P.S: May I have some more questions about No. 3 Group operations, landings, etc. in first half of 1941?
