    Default Hudson AM788 'A' of 206 Sqdn

    Trying to confirm if the above aircraft was written off (due to flak damage) following the Bremen 1,000-bomber raid of June 25/26, 1942.
    Thanks and regards:
    Robert

    Hi Robert
    From Air Britain Serials AA-AZ, AM788 was passed from 206 to 301 FTU and then to OADU and is recorded as Damaged by fire on 25/7/43 after stalling on t/o and hitting the ground with a wing at Ras-el-Ma.It seems to be the norm for the Air Britain series that the latest date is when the a/c is written off. they do not record the dates of intermediate transfer. FTU is Ferry Training Unit and OADU Overseas Aircraft Delivery Unit
    Regards
