I have only just seen the below archived post from 2007 concerning this - the originator was 'Andy.'
If this is still of interest, I would like to add the following: I have photographs of the funeral in Fayid and was a pall-bearer at the time. I was in the gymnasium at the time of this crash and heard the explosion. I also attended the crash site. Should Andy or anyone with interest wish copies or further information re this, please contact me. Don Crossley.
