Sorry, I have posted this request on this board but cannot find answer either in my archive or here.

I am looking for details of this loss - someone listed a complete crew for the aircraft.

Thanks

Franek

This is the man I was looking for. He is not listed in the ORB. What is your source?

Thanks

Sorry Franek, don't know where I read that name BEVAN. I think it was on this board, perhaps Kevin from Malta? Unfortunately have problems using the search facilities of this board.

Have a nice weekend,

Henk.
