The interesting aspect of this incident is that it seemed to coincide with an attack by FW 190's on Felixstowe and Ipswich and all aircraft crossed the coast at or very near Brackenbury within one or two minutes.Given the slow speed of the Bi planes compared with the FW 190's to me it seems a very hazardous situation. Various accounts of the FW raids are record by local press, Chris Goss and Michael Bowyer and others. Some response to my fathers original enquiries suggested that the Bi Planes appearance was 'Improbable' but not Impossible.
Twenty years on and I decided to take another look to try and find out if there were any other similar events involving Luftwaffe Bi Planes up to the UK shores. I believe there were a few HS123's still around in Belgium at this time and used for rec and weather related issues.
Any suggestions or help with locating any available records would be most appreciated.
