    RCAF Beech 18s were Expeditors. British Beech 18s were Expediters.

    Actually, early RCAF records use both spellings, Expediter and Expeditor.

    Speaking of RCAF records, W/C Burt's is online at the LAC. Some 450+ pages. Despite a few pages saying "see attached accident report", said report is not included.

    Regards,

    That's a pity as I note 2 Wing Commanders and a Group Captain among the casualties would suggest not just a training flight?

    I don't think a training flight at all, Tony. Atkinson was a physiotherapy nurse, Burt and Buckle surgeons.
