    Hi Malcolm,
    The details for Sgt BEECHEY are also correct. The cause of the incident - structural failure. The plane crash site - East Linton, East Lothian, Scotland

    Hi Malcolm,
    Mojmir is correct, Sgt. Beechey was killed when Typhoon DN364 crashed into the village of East Linton. AVIA 5/22 report W1446 refers.
