Nyt 05 DEC 2011: Det var IKKE en Halifax, der styrtede ved Halskov, men Lancaster X! Se Press + Halskov Halifax/Lancaster.

HAL DT628 startede fra RAF Snaith den 20. april 1943 kl. 21.23 for at bombe Stettin. Flyet vendte ikke tilbage! Det forsvandt sporløst.

Henning Knudsen fastslog om Landingsstel og dele i Korsør at landingshjulet helt afgjort er fra en Halifax! Se også en anden Halifax, fotos p158 og
Lancaster + Halifax landingsstel. Bag jernbanevognen med vragrester ses i øverste venstre hjørne noget af sydgavlen af Amerikakajen 1, 4220 Korsør.

8 Halifaxes gik tabt under denne operation, og da vi ved hvor de 7 andre gik tabt, se Stettin + Rostock 20 - 21 April 1943, måtte flyet ved Halskov være HAL DT628,
hvis det var en Halifax!

5 dage efter styrtene nævnte Luftgaukommando XI i Hamburg flyet ved Halskov som en Halifax!!! Det så jeg først i dokumenter fra Helge W. Gram, da folk i Korsør
var blevet spurgt om oplysninger! Se Artikler i Korsør Posten og indslag i TV2 ØST. Det har givet et antal beretninger og serier af fotos. Imponerende!

Se Print af en Halifax hos
Dunrobincastle.com. Vragdelene fundet på nedstyrtningsstedet er fra Lancaster X!

Sorø Amtstidende har det omtalte foto af motoren. Der nævnes intet om flyverne! Motoren blev fundet her omkring 100 m nordøst for Næsted's villa, Bragesvej 49.

Positionerne kendes også ved en anden motor og ved en propel - se Google Map p152.  Motorerne er dog fra Lancaster X.

Bombelasten i HAL DT628 var sandsynligvis 1 x 1.000 pund +  brandbomber: 48 x 30 pund og 450 x 4 pund. (Kilde: Neil Smith, 51 History Team, 51 Squadron.)

Breaking news 05 DEC 2011: It was NOT a Halifax, but Lancaster X! See Press + Halskov Halifax/Lancaster.

HAL DT628 took off from RAF Snaith on 20 April 1943 at 21.23 hours to bomb Stettin. The plane failed to return! It disappeared without trace.

Henning Knudsen established about the Undercarriage and parts in Korsør that the landingwheel definitely is from a Halifax!  See also  Halifax, Photos p158 and
Lancaster + Halifax undercarriage. Behind the goods van with pieces of wreckage a part of the south gable of Amerikakajen 1, 4220 Korsør is seen in the left corner.

8 Halifaxes were lost on this operation and as we know where the other 7 were lost, see Stettin + Rostock 20 - 21 April 1943 the plane at Halskov had to be 
HAL DT628 if it was a Halifax!

5 days after the air crashes Luftgaukommando XI in Hamburg mentioned the plane at Halskov as a Halifax!!! I did not see that in documents from Helge W. Gram
before people in Korsør had been asked for information! See Articles in the Korsør Posten and item on TV2 EAST. It gave a number of accounts and series of
photos. Impressing!

See Print of a Halifax at Dunrobincastle.com. However, the pieces of wreckage found at the crash site are from Lancaster X!

The newspaper Sorø Amtstidende has the
photo of the engine. Nothing was written about the airmen! The engine was found here about 100 m north east of
Næsted's villa, Bragesvej 49. (Source: Kaj Christiansen)
The positions are also known for another engine and a propeller, see Google Map p152. See Lancaster X.

The bomb load of HAL DT628  was probably 1 x 1,000lb, 48 x 30lb incendiaries and 450 x 4lb incendiaries. (Source: Neil Smith, 51 History Team, 51 Squadron.)

The 8 airmen are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial among more than 20,000 airmen who have no known grave. (Source: CWGC)
