28/v/44 – Type 16 GCI Practice

28th May 15:10
DH Mosquito XIII MM558 ME-E (A/I Mk.VIII)
Pilot: F/O Scott
Navigator (R): Self
TYPE 16 PRACTICE – Ventnor
2 runs at 1000ft: 1 run at 200ft: 1 run at 0ft – Over the sea off the isle of Wight – Excellent runs.

Sadly, later in the evening of 28/v/44, one of 488 Squadron’s aircraft shot down in error 2 Wellingtons, under the firm belief that they were enemy aircraft. To add to the confusion, it had been reported that Luftwaffe aircraft were coming in with Allied bombers.
