    Hej Fredric,

    Thanks for the info. I didn't know the name of the Russion PR unit. I am sorry I didn't see you reply sooner... I was looking in the wrong place !

    Mvh,

  2. Hi Justin,

    Actually I'm not the one who is behind this reseach - it is Lennart Andersson, a fellow aviation historian here in Sweden.

    So I can't confirm that it was on a mission to the Tirpitz, but on the other hand...it seems very much so to be the case.

    PS. Peter Arnold now states that this Spitfire is another one in the BP-range. The owner/restorer "stays" with BP929.

    Hello,

    I found this in an old thread:-

    "As I have understand it - the Russian Maritime AF recived seven PR.IVs and BP929 was one of them. RAF serials of the other six..?

    All Russian PR.IVs were used by the same unit; 118 ORAP.

    This Spitfire was lost in a crash on 29.2.44 when P/O L I Yel'kin flew into the Vaddasgaisafjället (mountain) in Northern Norway during a mision against Altenfjord."

    Please can you tell me how you know the mission this was lost on? I am interested in confirming if this was really a recce mission to Tirpitz.

    Kind Regards,
    Justin Adams
