    I can confirm that Flt Sgt LINTER, REGINALD SYDNEY JOHN was killed in Hurricane IIB, HL663 of No 127 Sqn.
    Linter was undertaking a calibration exercise off Cyprus. While flying at 9000ft his aircraft was seen to spin out of control and crash into the sea.
    Regards
    Andy

    Malcolm,
    HUNTER (HX690): Sofar no mention on Hunter found in files of other airmen involved and will keep him on my list of airmen unaccounted for.
