Were any Bulgarian (and German) airplanes destroyed in those raids performed by RAF and RYAF in April 1941?
Thanks,

No according to my knowledge - no airfields were targeted by RAF and RYAF and on the other side no interceptions by the Bulgarian or the German Air Forces were made.

On the other hand things were different some 200 miles north over Romania Oil fields of Ploiesti , where American bombers sought to stop the only flow of oil much needed to supply german war machine fighting in Ost front of Soviet Union.

I would like to inform you that my latest book, Bulgarian Fighter Colours, volume 1, by MMP Books, is now available:
http://mmpbooks.biz/ksiazki/422
Volume 2 will be available in early 2019.

The pair of books is the result of over 20 years of research and 4 years of writing/editing work.
