Lt C.W. Starck

Published in Killed In Action

2nd Lt Charles W Starck died on 29th May 1944, as a result of a mid air collison on 28th May, while he was flying the 510th's Piper L-4B Grasshopper. The crash occurred near Avon village a few miles north of Christchurch airfield. He may have collided with an RAF aircraft as no other USAAF aircraft was lost in a collison nearby. His body was later returned to the USA for burial.
