    Default RAF fatality in Canada 8 February 1962

    I'm hoping Ross will allow a post slightly outside the official time frame.

    I'm looking for the name and rank of an RAF exchange test pilot, serving with RCAF CEPE when he was killed in a helicopter crash in Canada on 8 February 1962. I have details of the crash, if anyone is interested.
