History[edit | edit source]

Built at Chester[3] and delivered in mid-1940, L7842 was lost on February 6th, 1941[4] while on a mission to Boulogne (France), when it was forced to land and was captured intact.[5][6] After the aircraft received German markings, it was flown to the Luftwaffe’s Rechlin test facility.[1]

L7842's subsequent fate is unknown.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. The Luftwaffe insignia is already in place, but the aircraft has not yet received the traditional yellow underside paint used by the Luftwaffe’s Rechlin test facility.[1]
