    Default Spitfire MkIA L1043

    Spitfire MkIa coded DW-O with serial L1043 belonged to 610th Sqn. RAF. During the July of 1940 squadron was based in Biggin Hill. Who was a pilot at that time?

    Hi,
    Nothing in the ORB for L1043.
    There are entries for L1044 and L1045.
    Regards
    Gerry

    Hello,
    Just thinking out loud ,
    Could it be L1075 you seek ?
    This a/c is listed as a 610 a/c but there is no trace in the 610 ORB according to the AB Serial book L1000-N9999.
    She is noted as mia 9th July 40.
    Nothing in FCL vol 1 revised.
    For reason at present forgotten by me I have her lost with 603 or 54 Sqn this date ?
    This was the date that Deere flew K9853 and force landed N3183 if I recall correctly.
    Just wondered if the question was in any way connected with Deere ?
