    Liberator BZ816 - shotdown by U-618

    http://uboat.net/boats/u618.htm

    "At 19.25 hours the boat was attacked by the Leigh Light equipped Liberator near the combined convoy SL-139/MKS-30. The aircraft was already hit during the first strafing run and no bombs were dropped, coming around for a second attack it was shot down about 1000 metres behind U-618 by the quadruple 20mm AA gun. All nine crewmen were lost."
