    Hi Tony,

    Its not much but Theo Boiten's book on nightfighters lists it as WNW of Monchengladbach but then all the claims were listed that way. He lists the crash at 23.05 and the nightfighter pilot as Hptm Heinz-Horst Hissbach for his 29 victory. He was later KIA on 14/15 April 1945 during a ground strafing attack with his victories standing at 30.

    Regards,

    John.

    Nothing to add but a, "Hello and good luck." I was involved in some research into the loss of LL904 PG-S 27 April 1944. It was an informative and emotional journey but I did find out a gerat deal. So from one PG-S to another, "Bon Chance."
