    Default 170 Sqdn Lancaster PB573 21/22 feb 1945

    Hi all,

    This is my first post here.

    Trying to locate the crashlocation of this 170 Sqdn Lancaster.
    In the night of 21/22 feb 1945 PB573 was on the return flight from Duisburg. It was hit by Flak, and later attacked by a night fighter between Venlo and Weert over the Netherlands.
    Pilot F/Lt. M.A. Coderre RCAF parachuted to savety and landed close to a farm near Weert.
    Three of the crew where wounded and taken care of in Dutch hospitals. The tailgunner is still mia.

    Does anyone know where the (remains of the) lancaster came down.
    Regards,

    Bas Maathuis
