    Default Re: False positives in the accounted airman database

    Oh yes, i am validating them manually from bottom of the list - found two hits out of ten.. so a bulk of them will still need to be cleaned up.

    Apologies . My dyslexia at play ! Coupled with my discalcula itís a bit of a nightmare sometimes . Names are one of my particular weak areas both in spelling and face to face recollection . Still it comes in handy when you call a girlfriend by the wrong name . I noticed last night Iíd spelt attatched about 900 times instead of attached ! The burdens we live with eh !

    Corrected about 264 serials in the CWGC DB that were returning 'unknown type' usually narrowed down to transposed numbers or letters.


    These are out of a total of 99,682 records tied to aircraft serials - so 1% rate in bad records.

    There are still about 960 entries that do not resolve to identified aircrafts or types..

    148 are simply "Unidentified Aircraft".. Others serials not known.
    106 Unidentified Spitfire serials
    100 records for Hurricanes
    87 Beaufighter entries
    37 records for Mosquitos
    37 Liberator
    24 Kittyhawk/Tomahawk
    27 Dakota
    27 Baltimore

    and so on

    Default Hurricane KZ398 two names in database

    Gents:

    In the database you have two names against this Hurricane which was destroyed at Shalloch on Minnoch Scotland 13/9/1943, causing the death of 64941 Sanders CR. I have seen the death certificate in respect of this event and Sanders is correct.

    The other name against this aircraft in the database is 533561 Mather SM who died 17/10/1943. He should correctly be associated with the loss of Oxford X6742 that crashed at Croydon on the said date.

    regards
