    Default 28th March 1942 - Blenheim QY-K - F/Sgt. Anthony George PARNELL

    Question posted to the 254 Squadron website...


    I'm French and my English langage is poor. So, please accept my apologies ...

    I'm interested with the loss, on 28th March 1942, of the Blenheim QY-K, serial Z6103, close to Brest. The aircraft had to do an emergency landing, possibly because of a mechanical problem. The 3 crewmen (Sgts PARNELL, MULLINEAUX and PRICE) were unharmed and captured by the Germans.

    I search any information about :
    - the reasons of this emergency landing : if it was a mechanical problem, what was it precisely ?
    - did they try to escape just after the landing, or were they immediately captured by the Germans ? (the aircraft wasn't burnt by the crewmen ... it could mean they were immediately captured) ; any information about the circumstances of their capture interest me.

    Have you pictures showing :
    - the 3 crewmen
    - the Blenheim QY-K Z6103 ?

    Many thanks in advance for any reply you could send to me.

    Best regards from a sunny France
