The good news is that 19 Squadron were based at Grimbergen Airfield from the 9th to the 28th of September 1944, before being sent to Britain again - so after all this messing around flying Kittyhawks over The Eastern Front we get to actually do something 19 Squadron did, for 11 days. Laughing

Just with the wrong type of Mustang... again... Rolling Eyes
