Sergeant (Pilot), Eric John EastonFor general information details of a reply from RAF Museum - Dear Mr Murphy Thank you for your enquiry. I am able to confirm that Sgt Easton was indeed killed in P3864. The aircraft dived into the ground at high speed from altitude. It was not possible to gather sufficient evidence for an investigation, but it was noted that he had been on an oxygen test, and that other cases had occurred where aircraft had dived into the ground from over 20,000 feet.
