    Default POW details

    If you go to www.rootschat.com/forum there is a guy with the identification of ADM199 who is really good about POWs. If you ask he might be able to find some documentation for you.

    Hi Mel,

    There is no German Nightfighter claim on this aircraft so most likely lost to flak.

    Regards,

    John.
