    Default Miles Whitney Straight RAF Northolt 1944

    Gents
    Does anyone know, which Miles Whitney Straight was assigned to RAF Northolt Station Flight or any Communication Flight there in 1944? I have some log entries, but no serial is given.
    TIA

    Hello Col
    Thanks for the reply. So it looks there are five contenders for September/October 1944. Looks to be never resolved, as both pilots flying the aircraft did not enter the serial in their logs.
