Postings: 14FPP

Two accidents, one his fault:

- 13 Nov 1942 - he taxied his Magister P2407 into a lorry, due to faulty brakes. As he had been taxying for five minutes, they reckoned he "should have discovered previously" that the brakes were faulty

- 17 Mar 1943, he crashed in Mustang I AG566 after the engine failed and caught fire on take-off. The aircraft was burnt out; luckily, he was uninjured.

 


 d. 8 May 1981

Buried in Wielkopolska, PoznaƄ, Poland
