My uncle enlisted in the RCAF, became a navigator after he crashed his trainer. The bomber he was in was hit by flak causing the loss of fuel. They made it back to base in England but were pput into a holding pattern while a review was taking place on the runway. They crashed into a house before clearence was gained to land. My uncle and a gunner, both in after facing seats, were the only survivors, though injured. |
He is still alert and well, retiring in Larchmont, NY last year from being a professor of psychology. Will provide any information you need (he doesn't have a computer).
