    Hi Klaus,

    I haven't cross-checked the locations, but you may be after this one (information from Tony Woods' list of Luftwaffe claims):

    06.09.44 Ofw. H. Göbel Epr. Kdo 262 Mosquito NQ-64 at 9.200 m. [Waldbröl] 14.20 Film C. 2027/II Anerk: Nr. -

    Ofw. Göbel would have been flying an Me 262, NQ-64 is a map reference.

    The Mosquito in question was MM300 of 540 Squadron, on a reconnaissance sortie to to Munich.

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Default Mosquito shot down in Pfalz area

    Hello Mike,
    thanks for the information but i think this Mosquito is a nother one.
    the distanz between Waldbröhl and Oberschlettenbach more then 400 km, but correct is the Me262, a eyewithness told me it was a Me262. (but i am not realy sure it was a Me262, can also be a Me109)
    regards Klaus

    Hi Klaus,

    Not sure what to tell you. The info I have is that Fleming and Clark were lost aboard MM300 on 6th September.

    I've no information on any other losses on that date. Is the date correct?

    Cheers,

    Mark
