    Default Anson N--27 crash Canada ?

    The son of Gordon Brake DFC has kindly provided us with some photos for the 630 Squadron website. One shows an Anson apparently after a single wheel landing, possibly in Canada, serial N--27 the missing digits are fuzzy, possibly the last three are 827. Pilot likely was an RCAF NCO, we believe that nobody was hurt. Please can any member help us to ID the aircraft, date, place, pilot, etc.

    thanks PeteS

    Pete looking into RAF Serials I would guess one of following:
    N3027
    N9527
    N9827

    But there are also some more so I can be wrong.

    HTH

    Pete,

    Can you tell me why you think the incident occurred in Canada?

    2/. Can you actually see the serial prefix, "N"?
    3/. Is the Anson camouflaged?
    4/. Is the serial, large or small?

    Any idea of a timeframe?

    Col.

    Pete the best would be show the photo - the fuselage part with the serial would be enough.

    Possible it was either a USAAF or destined for the USAAF ?

    Yes I will do it later in the evening from my home computer.
    Even I am working from home I am strictly differentiate computers for work and private use and not working on both at once:)

    After a glance on the photo where the serial is really not much readable I will bet for N9827 serving wit 83 Sq/44 Sq/6 BATF/HQ SFPP/10 AOS/10 OAFU.

    But let's see when I will upload the photo.
