Hi all,

Whilst reading through the 58 Squadron ORB for 20th April 1945 the crew of Halifax NA245 (N) observed near Larvik anchorages 'while dropping flares (between 01.00 and 2.00 on 21st) observed a petrol fire in position 5003N-0955E. Two parachutes seen in light of fire which was still burning when 'N' left the area. 'N' passed over the fire and two of the crew observed a twin tail aircraft on fire.'

Can anyone tell me what this aircraft was, it wasn't a BC aircraft and not a 58 Squadron aircraft so I am presuming it was German, possibly an ME110?

Many thanks,

Russ
