    Default False positives in the accounted airman database

    Iíve noticed that whilst the IBCC entries for aircrew are great, for non aircrew they more often than not contain no details at all . Iíve been through the first 6 months of the war and of 9 such entries to 1940/04/14 Solomon , Rowe , Rule, Douglas , Green , Flynn, Prior and Hall - 8 of them have NO details of loss whatsoever

    Jon, Good call out. Did a query and Thankfully I have only 146 of them present (No Aircraft Id, but an IBCC link). I had used the IBCC provided data to populate this so some may not have had the info. All the records seem to be from 1940 and 1941..

    I have cleaned those out - will validate against IBCC and re-enter only those that have additional details.

    Oh yes, i am validating them manually from bottom of the list - found two hits out of ten.. so a bulk of them will still need to be cleaned up.
