Hi Linkagain,

the Missing Air Crew Report for Edward L Haight has the loss date as 17 July 1943. According to the MACR British Coastal Command intercepted a German radio report of an enemy plane being shot down above Holland at 14:45. The MACR leads to believe this was Haight's plane. According to Tony Wood's Combat Claim & Casualties List the given time and place correspond to a Luftwaffe claim by Feldwebel Erwin Engel of 2./JG 3, who claimed a Lighting on 17 July 1943 at 14:45 off the coast above Ouddorp.
