Type: German Air Force (Luftwaffe)
Location: Abbeville, France
Waist (Flexible) Gunner 42‑3330 Aborted mission after taking off.
Ground spare aircraft: replaced 42‑5883. Turned back because #2 engine was 'thought to be out.' Apparently the co-pilot feathered #2 after the engineer test-fired the top turret guns, thinking the engine had 'blown up.' Bomb load returned to base.
