The Webmaster received this e-mail from Martjin, Netherlands. Anyone out there who can help? Send me or Martjin an e-mail!:


For more then 10 years I've been trying to get some more information about attached engine plate. When I was a kid, I got this engine plate from my grandmorther. Her brother was taking the plates from a crashed plane in WW2.

As you can see, this plate belongs to a Tempest or Typhoon. At the bottom there are some scarved engine numbers. I would like to know if there’s a way to find out where this planes crashed, based on the engine numbers to get some more info about the crew etc…

I hope to hear from you!

Kind regards,

Martijn Reckman
