    Thats my plane, alright. There has been some articles in dfferent newspaper in Sweden since the word came out.

    Damn, just found this thread after first visiting this post Halifax tailwheel - Page 2 They mention a list of aircraft this could possibly have been, one of which I have interest in.

    But I knew it was a super long shot, and, apparently, too long this time.

    Reason being ... I was looking for information on aircraft LK971, a Halifax bomber from 434 Squadron of the RCAF that left RAF Croft AT 17:19 hrs on February 15, 1944 and disappeared without a trace.

    The Bomb-Aimer, Donald Grant Goodfellow was born and raised in the home I now own and live and learning of this compelled me to find all I could about him, his service, his crew and the circumstance of their loss. The crew was approximately halfway through their 30 missions when they were lost, with a 'second dickie' on board as well. Since no trace of the crew and aircraft has been found, it is speculated they may have been shot down over the Baltic Sea by a Luftwaffe night fighter on their way to their target, Berlin.

    Maybe it can be found in time, who knows.

    Thanks

    Did you guys find any bombs at the site? I only see .303 ammo, which is not dangerous. Danny

    The image of the numbered disc with gradients from 15 to 25 on either side suggest a twin engined aircraft.

    Hi Chris - that is the face from the bomb steering indicator - it's not engine related.

    Thanks Elliot that nails it. Here's two images from Can Anyone ID this Indicator?. The first image is from a Bolingbroke.
