    Hi guys sorry to dig up an old thread, whilst searching for information I came across this posting on the forum.

    My great uncle 38363 F/sgt Keith Jeffery RAAF was an Airgunner onbard this aircraft and was killed in the crash

    Does anybody have any additional information on this aircraft?


    Thanks Luke.

    Hello Luke,

    Do you know what specific information it is that you are looking for? I'm assuming you already followed the link posted in an earlier post to http://www.archieraf.co.uk/scs/halifaxlk901.html

    If you can drop me a line at the e-mail address on the 'Home' link of above website, I have been contacted in the past from another relative of this airman.

    I'm also interested if you have further details or photographs of your great uncle that you can share.

    Thanks & Regards
    Linzee

    Hello Linzee

    I hope you are well.

    Linzee - "They concluded that the aircraft disintegrated due to uploading in cu cloud when aircraft was out of control."

    I have been researching another 1944 Halifax loss and that Halifax was also out of control, due to a rudder overbalance defect and blamed on unmodified rudders.

    Apparently, it was known by March 1944 that the Halifax was under investigation for accidents where the Halifax aircraft went out of Control and then suffered structural failure.
