    Hi Henk,
    Nothing in the 607 Squadron ORB for any of these...no air crash either.

    Best Wishes.
    Robert.

    Henk, another which doesn't clear up your query but the pilot of Oxford R8828 RAFC was one LAC James Quinn RAF 968367. I have a note that it struck a tree on high ground whilst attempting a force landing in bad weather, flying solo. Why he was so far from Cranwell is not known.

    His career after this incident is not known.

    regards Rich Allenby
