    Default Lt. F.S. Rader USAAF

    Hi,
    Does anyone know the full name and where is buried Lt. F.S. Rader? He dived into the range NW Selsey during his rocket firing practice, 22 May 1945 - Hawker Typhoon JR434, Fighter Leaders School, Tangmere. He was detached from 61st Fighter Squadron, 56 Fighter Group USAAF "to fly the Typhoon in all its aspect".

    Default Lt. F.S. Rader USAAF

    Hi,

    My best guess is:

    1st Lt Franklin S Rader, ASN O-774302,
    From: Alameda - California
    Died Non-Battle (DNB)

    No details about final rest.
    Probably brought home to USA.

    Regards

    Finn Buch
