    Default Oxford LX196

    Hi All,

    On the night of 27/4/44 the above Oxford collied with an ME410 of II./KG51 piloted by Lt Wenning who was killed. The crash was in the circuit of 18 (P) AFU at Church Lawford airfield. Does anyone know the fate of the crew of the Oxford.

    Thanks,

    John.

    Here is what I have:

    Lt.Wolfgang Wenning and Fw Gustav Delp of II./KG51,were killed while on intruder operations over England. Their Me410(9K+ZP) collided with an Airspeed Oxford LX196 piloted by Canadian pilot P/O Gregor Stephen Moore whilst in circuit of Church Lawford airfield. Both aircraft crashed near Frankton, Rugby and all three men onboard both planes were killed.

    Almost all of II./KG 51's missions at this time were intruder and harassment bombing missions over England and especially over Bomber Command operational and training airfields in East Anglia. All this was in support of the main bomber effort under "Unternehmen Steinbock."
