Maj. Roswell Freedman’s P-47D-22, 42-26035, E9:F of the 376th Squadron crashed at RAF Waterbeach during a training mission flown in co-operation with the RAF on 3 May 1944. Shortly after take-off, engine failure forced the pilot, Capt. Wallace B. Frank, to return to the field, but then was confronted by two of 514 Squadron’s Lancasters parked on a hardstand. Fortunately, he had just enough flying speed to avoid a collision! (Frank)
