    Stuck this on Flypast forum - I am hoping someone her has 59 OTU ORB!

    Interesting According to Air Britain Serials W9179 dived into sea on this date. This is the aircraft MACFADZEAN was on.

    re: "Records I have list two Hurricanes of 59OTU lost that day (W9121 & W9184) "

    These two aircraft in Northumberland Aviation Diary and Air Britain Aeromilitaria Summer 2009 as crashing on this day with 59 OTU

    Air Britain has

    27.03.43 Hurricane I W9121 59 OTU 1/2 mile SE of Brunton Cause: Undershot Landing at Night
    27.03.43 Hurricane I W9184 59 OTU Chathill Northumberland Cause: Crashed on Take off at Night

    I could not find MACFADZEAN on the UK Death Registers but it looks like a body was recovered because he is buried at KIRKNEWTON (ST. GREGORY) CHURCHYARD

    Northumberland Aviation Diary puts Sgt (Pilot) Gordon A. CULLENER - 1383311(who died of wounds or injuries received on active service) on Hurricane W9121 at Brunton. But same source had Sgt Robert H.M. MACFADZEAN on W9184 at Chathill, Northumberland which as we now know is incorrect

    Of course no one may have been killed on W9184. The 59 OTU ORB may solve this mystery but I do not have it!

    Thanks

    The 59 OTU ORB , mentions the loss of Macfadzean and Cullener on the said date , but no mention of serial Numbers it just states both these sgt's killed in flying accident , that is it

    Thanks Paul & Phill.
    What will be wise ? MACFADZEAN on W9179 (at sea, recovered later and therefore not for this day in a death register) and CULLENER on W9121. No fatality on W9184.
    Regards,
    Henk.
