    I had picked the wrong Bo, I imagine the Bo we are dealing with is the town that the second largest in Sierra Leone, which is 45 mins Google driving from Blama.

    Dennis, Hi,
    This one is proving more 'difficult' than most!!!
    We will just have to hope that Jonny's possible POC in the area (a) appears, and (b) is keen to do something!!

    Thanks everyone for all the information so far, I have not forgotten about the question but have just been following the trail that has been laid out so far.
    Hopefully I will have more information to pass on soon.

    The RAF museum further replied.

    I've double checked and we definitely do not have an 1180 for this accident. As EX501 was on South African Air Force rather than RAF charge, any records which have survived for it will probably be in South African archives

    Any SAAF records expert here?
