    Hartas was killed when he attempted to land at Hawkinge in Spitfire P7888. The airfield and area was covered in low cloud and he flew into hills.

    However, there appears to be some conflict about whether the aircraft was P7888. Peter Hall's 91 Squadron states that it was, but the Spitfire file states that that aircraft was lost with 308 squadron on the 12th July 1941

    The online ProductionList www.spitfires.ukf.net has it fixed from the incident on 12-1-41 could this explain its 'dual life' - Though I do have my doubts!!


    P7888 8MU 12-1-41 CE ops 10-2-41 AST recat B 308S 9-7-41 Missing from escorting bombers to Hazebrouck 12-7-42


    I have 'flew into hill in low cloud 2 mls SE Hawkinge on 10.2.41' i wonder if flew into 'could have actually be flew into a a low angle so that aircrfat not badly damaged, but pilot killed.. But this is just my own theory!

    anyway: http://www.the-few.org.uk/personal.php

    For the time being keep on file that Spitfire P7888 probably could be repaired after accident 10-2-1941.
    AB has for P7888: 421 Flt/"91"/308.
