    Hello Alain,

    Thanks for your comments -what would then be a matching loss to the Nabrich claim of 00.20 hrs?:

    Oblt. Josef Nabrich: 7 3./NJG1 Halifax 4 km N. Larum (Antwerpen): 3.000 m. 00.20

    Cheers, Theo

    Hi Guys , we started this project again. Yes the plane came down in Larum ( Geel) . I have an eyewitness who have seen the cockpit lying on the field close to his home. He made some plexi glass crosses from the cockpit windows . The problem in that area are the many swamps , but we keep on searching
