    Default Mosquito MM550 Crashed 17.2.45

    On another Forum, I have identified this aircraft as the one that crashed on to a row of homes at Rustington, Sussex on 17.2.45

    MM550 was Mosquito NFXIII of the Night Fighter Development Unit, and it dived into Chaucer Avenue, Rustington after slow roll on this date

    The following 3 civilans were killed on the ground when the aircraft hit 4 bungalows and caught fire:

    ARTHUR SIDNEY FOSTER aged 57 of 13 Milton Close Rustington

    FLORENCE MABEL WARD aged 50 of Arcita, Chaucer Avenue, Rustington

    EDWARD LEONARD VINCENT aged 63 of Suncot, Chaucer Avenue, Rustington

    The aircraft hit 4 bungalows and caught fire.

    Can anyone supply the ID of the 2 crew?

    Thanks

    I had those two as 'possibles' from the CWGC Hut-Six Search Engine...

    Many Thanks
