For the Memory Of Crew Lost In Action
12 October 2021
The BK716 was lost when returning from a bombing raid in Germany in 1943, and first discovered in the Makermeer in 2008. It was long believed that the aircraft found was another Short Stirling, the BK710 until a a cigarette case scribed with the initials JMC for the plane’s wireless operator James Michael Campbell, confirmed its identity as the BK716. The plane was recovered from the lake this summer with the remains of the seven Canadian and British crew members on board the wreck.
