    Hi Alain
    It would seem to be confirmed in Vol 3 of 2nd TAF by Shores and Thomas and in Vol 3 of Fighter Command Losses by N Franks. Both publications have the name as O-P F Christopherson
    Regards

    Hit by ground fire in the glycol system. Baled out but was too low for the chute to open. Shot down in NH544 AH-A.
