Would the 42 Sqn men be 42 OTU? We seen an example of this recently? Checking the list above of crashes, my money is on Blenheim V5762. If their not listed in Ross CCL then I think thats likely. My copy is in Dublin, I'm at home on the west coast. ....Read More.||dennis_burke on 27th December 2008 01:26:00|
