Shackleton crash 18 Nov 1967The naval officer in question was Lt Cdr Christopher Brian SCHOFIELD 34. There was also an RCAF navigator Flt Lt Joseph Dennis FILLION 35.

Shackleton crash 18 Nov 1967I have only joined this forum - very interesting. All Shackletons and groundcrew at RAF Kinloss were removed from Squadrons and put on the strength of RAF Kinloss in Feb 1967. They were borrowed by the squadrons (120, 201 & 206) and any detachments overseas were accompanied by groundcrew from Shackleton Handling & Rectification Flight. I was on 120 Sqn until this changeover and remained on Shacks until moving to Nimrods in 1970 [QUOTE=Oldduffer;60851]The naval officer in question was Lt Cdr Christopher Brian SCHOFIELD 34.
