Mosquito FB VI SZ999 crashed in Nyrup Bay 21/3 1945.


The aircraft belonged to RAF 464 Sqn. 2nd Tactical Air Force and was coded SB-P.
T/O Fersfeld. OP: Shell house attack.


After the attack the attackers turned towards northwest, and some of them came as far north as the north coast of the island of Sjælland, where they were met by flak from German positions.

SZ999 was hit and is believed to have crashed into the Nyrup Bay 13 kilometres north of Nykøbing Sjælland.

Afterwards wreckage was found washed ashore in Nyrup Bay, but there has been found no trace of Pilot F/O Ronald G. Dawson RAAF and Navigator F/O Fergus T. Murray.
