This is a long shot, but thought I would ask, just in case someone might have the info.

Wellington, LP568, May 8, 1944

Aircraft took off from RAF Peplow for a demonstration flight. Aircraft while demonstrating evasive maneuvers had an engine fail causing the aircraft to crash killing one crew member, injuring one crew, the rest were safe, not injured

Killed in the crash was Sgt A.O. Wedin, R/221579, RCAF, Yreka, California, U.S.A.

Injured but survived was Sgt N.L. Pegg, Survived, Injured

Safe, not injured Sgt W.T. Cake, Survived

Trying to see if I can get the rest of the crew, and positions ... If Possible

Cheers
Georg
