    Killed when Cessna Citation G-UESS, crashed off the Isle of Lewis. Was a privately owned jet. Also killed was General Gimbert of the French Air force plus 8 others, including the pilot and one crew member.

    The aircraft wasn't found for 10 years, until dragged up by a trawler.

    Pavel,
    He died when a Cessna Citation disappeared from the radar screen roughly 10 SW of Stornoway. There were 10 SoB (including a French General). An Inquiry was held. The results of that Inquiry are, presumably, somewhere in the depths of the CAA (The Times Archive acknowledged).
