    Default Spitfire BS388 28/08/1945

    Hi,

    This Spitfire tipped on its nose landing at a Brussels airfield, caused by a burst tyre.

    Did this happen at Evere or at Melsbroek airfield ?

    Who was the pilot + which unit ?

    Many thanks and stay safe !

    Luc

    Hi Luc,

    Air Britain RAF serials says it was at Melsbroek while on charge with Fighter Command Communications Squadron.

    Hi Peter,

    Many thanks for this info.

    Checked the orb of this Squadron (AIR 27/2353), this accident is not mentioned.

    Cheers,

    Luc
