    Hi Henk,

    227 ORB states:
    "Three aircraft left Limasoll for Nicosia. JL915, F/O D.M. Anderson (P) and J.P Timmons, aircraft swung on take off and crashed into JM239, W/O G. B. Grennan (P), Sgt. G.S.O. Palmer (Obs) and W/O Budd (Passenger), which was waiting to taxi into position. All occupants killed as both aircraft burst into flames and a bomb exploded a minute later"

    Hope this helps,

    Regards,

    Stevie

    Thanks Stevie & Ross.
    I had the crew casualties out of Allison's TSGNO but now also could delete BUDD's name from the list.
    Regards,
    Henk.
