    Default 57 Squadron

    Hi all,
    I am trying to find info/pictures relating to 57 Squadron whilst they were based at East Kirkby.
    A colleague of mine at work has informed me that he lost his Grandad (Watts)on March 2nd 1945 when his Lancaster collided with another Lanc during a training exercise.
    Any pointers would be greatfully received
    Best wishes
    Gerry

    Hello Gerry,

    Could be a collision between Lancaster ME473 from 207 Sqn and Lancaster ND572 of 57 Sqn.

    Details taken from an old link back in 2002.
