    Default Seeking info on Beaufighter 68 Sqn

    Hi all,
    Sometime in the first half of September 1943 crashed Beaufighter Mk.VIF 68 Sqn. The machine was completely destroyed. Crew F/Sgt Honor - Sgt Edwards - OK. Anyone knows the details of this accident (main place of accident, date of incident, labeling machines)?
    Thank you in advance for any information.

    Hi Col.
    I am grateful. Do not have in its archives a record of the emergency landing at Coltishall Beaufighter Mk.IF dated March 26, 1942. Crew W / O Welch - P / O Bennett was on his machine hydraulics failure and crash-landed without landing gear.
    Thank you in advance
