    Dear Rob,

    thanks a lot for your answer.

    There is no report listed in the Luftgau XI files so I have great doubt that this Mosquito crashed near Hannover. This Mosquito was heading for Frankfurt so I believe that the crash must have taken place much further south.

    regards

    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    As the available data is inaccurate ("in the Hannover area"), you may well be right.

    Regards,

    Rob
