    Hi Pavel,

    There was only 1 occupant, pilot S/Ldr Young. According to the ORB: During the afternoon S/Ldr Young took off alone and soon after was told by another pilot of another aircraft that flames were coming from underneath his port engine. Pieces soon began to fly off and after feathering the props, he crash landed. S/Ldr Young got out safely, but the aircraft was burnt up.

    Regards,
    Hans
