Would you have any info on 106 squadron that flew Lancaster’s out of Metheringham England around April 24 to 28th, specifically a raid on Schwienfurt Germany where 5 Lanc were shot down. ND853 ZN-J was the planes numbers, any info you can round up as i seem to have hit a wall with how many flights it made or any info at all.
I don’t have any info at hand, but I’d suggest looking through the squadron’s operational record book: http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/browse/r/h/C2503470
For more specific information on ND853, you can try requesting its Aircraft Movement Form from the RAF museum: https://www.rafmuseum.org.uk/research/default/archive-collection/aircraft-records.aspx
I hope this helps !
Magnifique dessin de Spit “Merci”
