    Default Loss of Lancaster JB 312 A

    Again a question about 97 Squadron.

    I am interested in knowing about, and discovering pictures of the crew of this Lancaster. It is my understanding that it crashed at Bourn on Feb. 21 1944.

    Information is to be included on a 97 Squadron site.

    Thanks in advance. David.

    Hi David
    Chorley Bomber Command Losses confirms that it crashed 300 Yds short of the runway at Bourn on return from an op to Stuttgart with the loss of all on board. It might have been damaged because Chorley records that it had reported a mid-air collision while leaving the target area but it is not 100% clear if JB312 was involved, or simply observed the collision although I think it less likely that it made a report of a simple observation given the prevailing tendency toward Radio Silence
