    Default 151 Squadron RAF

    Hello
    (http://151squadron.org.uk)
    April 15 1945
    W/O KIMBER - F/Sgt RYAN on an Intruder operation to support the raid on Potsdam, were on high level support when they had an engine cut near Hamburg. This resulted in yet another long distance flight on one engine for this crew. They flew a distance of 450 miles, landing at Linton on Ouse. On touching down, a tyre burst after 200 yds, causing damage to the aircraft but not to the crew.
    Does anyone have their full names and service numbers?
    W/O E.M. KIMBER (pilot 151 Sqdn RAF)
    F/Sgt V. RYAN (navigator 151 Sqdn RAF)
    Will anyone help?
    Regards
    Pavel

    Hi Mojmír
    Very late, I'm sorry (Covid).
    Identification Eric Maurice Kimber? He had post war No. 2604013 (RAuxAF?). Probably not right, probably a mistake. ​
    There are two holes left in my database.
    Thank you for trying to help me.
    Regards Pavel
