    Default Mustang FZ113 or FB113? 23/01/1946

    Gents


    ABS has the same date, fate and crash location for both the above serial numbers. The only difference is that FB113 is recorded as being on charge with 19 and 315 Squadrons, whilst FZ113 is recorded as being on charge with 316 234 129 and 315 Squadrons.

    Both a/c said to have CFL with engine failure at Halvergate, Norfolk 23/01/1946.
    I have pilot Waleski M against FZ113 in my database.

    Can anyone sort this out please?

    Thanks

    Well Dave the ORB records that F/O M Zaleski made a forced landing and his aircraft was Cat E. Form 78 records that FB113 was Cat E on 23/1/46. On Form 78 FZ113 is recorded soc 31/1/46.

    Steve/Dave,
    Would that be (eventually) Flt Lt Maciej Konrad Zaleski (P-2496 / 704473)? I merely ask to check the RAF number. It is in a Block that I am interested in.
    TIA

    Hi Peter
    The ORB has simply M Zalinski.
    Wilhelm Ratuszynski on his site http://www.polishsquadronsremembered.com/ has P/O ZALESKI Maciej P-2496. He does not have an RAF number.
