crest raf squadron
Unit: 622 Squadron
Aircraft: Lancaster
Code: HK769-GI-D
Base: Middenhall
Mission: Köln
Crew officer:
Incident: Shot down by German flak

Location: (Prov. Luxembourg)



Köln- part of the second wave. 858 aircraft, 9 lost. 703 aircraft in the first wave and 155 in the second although only 15 aircraft bombed in the second wave because the G-H station in England went off line. There are few details of the raid from local sources, such was the level of disarray. When the American troops arrived in the city just a few days later they found at least 400 bodies lying in the streets.
Reason for Loss: Hit by flak and presumed to have crashed in the target area
