Some shots of 102 sqn aircraft flying

Postby researchingreg » Mon Jul 07, 2014 4:49 pm

I have come across a Pathe newsreel about the 1000 bomber raid on Cologne 30 May 1942 which shows some 102 Sqn Aircraft see link
you may have to cut and paste the link.

The aircraft seen at 06:12 is a Halifax bomber, coded DY-G, of 102 Squadron.

At 06:20 is another Halifax, coded DY-J, also of 102 Squadron.

At 06:34 is a third Halifax, coded DY-C, again of 102 Squadron.

I think DY-G is Halifax W.1066, DY-J is Halifax W.1167 and DY-C is Halifax R.9494 given the date of the film.
