420504 - Unaccounted airwomen and airmen - 4-5-1942Hi Henk L7035 LAC E A Langley Crashed near to shore. Sgt Finney who was wearing an inflated life jacket was rescued by Sgt H Shepherd, 1114117 who swam out from the shore. Sgt Shepherd had observed the crash from the air, landed his own aircraft and boarded the station fire tender to the scene of the accident. The air gunner drowned when the compressed air inflation failed and he failed to orally inflate his mae west after extracating himself from his turret. It was thought that a valve spring fracture was responsible for the forced landing. Seaplane Tender No.364 was the duty air sea rescue boat at Invergordon and it was ordered to proceed to crash at Chanonry Point and was slipped 18:23 to 20:20 hrs. No.6 a/s rescue unit. LAC Langley rests in Alford Cemetery, Lincolnshire. Westwood & Whittle on V9516 Regards Ross ....Read More.Ross_McNeill on 11th July 2009 12:25:27
