    Default RAF CC losses on 4/10/44

    Hi all,

    I would like to ask if anyone (maybe Ross) can help me with details of RAF CC losses on 4/10/44. I know that there was shot down Liberator GR Mk.V (FL937) „PP-K“ but according to monitoring of Luftwaffe radio communication German fighters from Norway attacked (and maybe shot down) during afternoon two planes identified as Sunderland and Liberator. But there is no other claim except FL937 in Tony Wood list.

    Could anybody provide me any additional info about another Liberator/Sunderland attacked/destroyed by German fighters in the afternoon of 4/10/44?

    TIA
