Was a plane carrying Winston Churchill almost shot down during World War 2?

On January 17, 1942 Winston Churchill was nearly shot down twice, once by the enemy and once by his own airforce. During a return trip from the United States, his flying boat navigated off course and came close to German anti-aircraft guns in France, after this error was noticed and corrected, the aircraft then appeared on British radar as an enemy bomber. Several RAF fighters were assigned to shoot him down, but luckily for Churchill they never found him.
