Squadron Aircraft: Summary Information


Listed below is the information available for this aircraft which served in 550 Squadron.

In particular thanks are due as listed below to sites without which it would have been next to impossible to put this information together:

Aircraft Details: The column headers should be fairly self-explanatory. The final column (Web links) contains, where given, links to other items on this web-site or indeed to external sources where further information or photographs, etc can be found.

Associated Aircrew: This is the list of servicemen known to have flown on this aircraft at some time or other, it is not a particular crew (that can be found on other lists available on the site such as the crew shown on a specific operation, etc).

An extended view of the Squadron Aircraft report providing more detailed information is available here [IMPLEMENTATION STILL TO BE FINALISED]. This extended version of the Squadron Aircraft report lists the crew members known to have flown in a particular aircraft.

Definitions of the abbreviations used are available: here.
