    Default 27 August 1952 or around

    Hi gents!
    Does anyone have any record of RAF aircraft being damaged or lost on 27 August 1952 or around that date? I mean a general Europe area, so no Aden nor Seletar at least.
    TIA

    Thanks. Hmm, perhaps the damage was slight or was not recorded at all. The aircraft was Mosquito or Mosquito alike, so neither of the list fits the description.

    The date I have been provided was exact, but there was no certainity as to the type involved. It could not have been RAF aircraft involved, but I am checking most obvious possibilities first. 13 Squadron perhaps? I think they were still flying Mosquitoes.

    Hi
    I am afraid not. Actually, I do not know if the aircraft was British and what was the type. I am checking the possibility it was, and it looks it was not, unless there was little or no damage.
    Thanks guys.
