Combat 1944-September-12 to 1944-September-12

ctum) Pathfinder Force, RAF Oakington. Lancaster B III aircraft NE126 failed to return from a raid on targets in Hamburg, Germany, crashing at Damscheld about 3 km WSW of Oberwesel, a small town on the West bank of the Rhine 6 km NNW of Bacharach, Germany

The entire crew was lost, cause of loss not determined

Flight Lieutenant KI Aalborg (RCAF), Flight Lieutenant RJL Banks (RAFVR), Pilot Officer H Easthope (RAFVR), Pilot Officer D Mapleson (RAFVR), Pilot Officer AD Price (RAFVR), Pilot Officer AC Scott (RAFVR) and Flight Lieutenant RV Stoneman (RAFVR) were all killed in action

During the flight to the target, Lancaster NE126 was apparently struck by fire from another unidentified Lancaster and suffered damage to both the starboard mainplane and starboard outer engine, which may have been a factor in it's loss

Avro Lancaster

The Avro Lancaster is a British Second World War heavy bomber. It was designed and manufactured by Avro as a contemporary of the Handley Page Halifax, both bombers having been developed to the same specification, as well as the Short Stirling, all three aircraft being four-engined heavy bombers adopted by the Royal Air Force (RAF) during the same wartime era.

The Lancaster has its origins in the twin-engine Avro Manchester which had been developed during the late 1930s in response to the Air Ministry Specification P.13/36 for a capable medium bomber for "world-wide use". Originally developed as an evolution of the Manchester (which had proved troublesome in service and was retired in 1942), the Lancaster was designed by Roy Chadwick and powered by four Rolls-Royce Merlins and in one version, Bristol Hercules engines. It first saw service with RAF Bomber Command in 1942 and as the strategic bombing offensive over Europe gathered momentum, it was the main aircraft for the night-time bombing campaigns that followed. As increasing numbers of the type were produced, it became the principal heavy bomber used by the RAF, the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and squadrons from other Commonwealth and European countries serving within the RAF, overshadowing the Halifax and Stirling.
