    Default Mosquito KB200 loss?

    Anyone have details for this Mosquito? I've sources which say it was lost 10/11 June with 139 Squadron, but none give a crew or any details of its loss.

    TIA

    Chorley Vol.7 page 343 has KB200 of "16 OTU" lost "12"-6-1945. Training Preston Capes bombing range, Oxfordshire. Got lost and crashlanded on the Dutch Frisian island Terschelling. F/Lt (Pilot) K.L. KLINKER and his navigator (name not known) were both seriously injured.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hi all,

    Trying to identify F / Lt (Pilot) K.L. KLINKER. I have very little information.
    Does anyone know the nationality (RAF and RCAF and RAAF ist negative),
    service number, and surname of the pilot?
    Any help appreciated.
    Regards
    Pavel

    Hi Pavel,

    I can confirm he is not listed in the AIR 78.

    His surname sounds German to me...

    I have checked http://www.danishww2pilots.dk by Mikkel and he is not listed there.

    I have checked also several genealogy servers and I would suggest Klinker is Swedish surname, so he might a be of Swedish origin possibly.

    HTH

    PS I am pretty sure Håkan would be able to help you - at leat to exclude my idea

    I can confirm that I have never heard about him. Could he be Dutch?

    Just in case anybody was wondering, F/L Klinker was not RNZAF either.
