    Default Supermarine Attacker FB.II WK324 lost 15.07.53

    Can someone please tell me where (location) this was lost and cause ?

    Pilot Lt Charles Raymond Bushe ejected and was first navy use of automatic ejection
    (not C W Bushe as stated elsewhere)

    He was later killed 26 May 1959 as Lt Cdr, HMS Centaur Sea Venom WW289,

    Thanks Paul

    A/c was flying from HMS Eagle when it suffered explosion and fire resulting in ejection of the pilot. 55-47-5 N, 8-8-0 W which, if I calculate correctly, is in the Atlantic west of Islay and north of Co. Donegal.
