    Vengeance AN613 and Vengeance AN759 both were new allotments that crashed enroute to Bhopal where 1 AGS was. That probably accounts for Malcolms post that they were from 320MU (Karachi). and crashed after being dispatched to 1 AGS at Bhopal/Bairagarh. AN613 was apparently the more serious crash. A Vultee representative arriving in Bhopal a couple of days after the crash to visit the crash site personally (presumaby for the CoI)
