    Hi Henk,

    Master III - W8694 - 7 FIS - crashed on approach Upavon.

    F/L Jones (Instructor) and Sgt Morrison (pupil) crashed due to faulty throttle control. Both suffered minor injuries.

    Regards

    Ross,
    Has anyone else seen the apparent insertion of a US telephone link into Henks 1st post on this thread in place of the RAF Reg sqn no.? Poss new form of Spam? I,m sure Henk didn't put it there.
    Regards
    Dick

    No its just the new version of Internet explorer, it recognises strings of numbers as phones numbers.

    Suspisious lot. I'm running IE7 on my work computer and its not there but fiances laptop has IE8 and I noticed this alst night. Its a tie in to Skype, clicking on the number woudl allow you too call it via Skype.

    Click around your toolbars, internet options etc, you most likely can turn it off.

    there may be a skype plug in to turn off or remove from your computer, i can't vouch fo rthis but this suggestion makes most sense to me: http://blog.bouncedesign.co.za/?p=6

    In anycase its not spam, just slightly annnoying, and its only very isolated case on this message forum due to there being a serial number and RAF Regiment squadron number in close proximaty in some text.

    The F1180 for Hampden P2067 is one where two aircraft are listed.

    The Hapden is Cat B but also is Cat E loss for Spitfire P8583.

    No injuries on the Hampden but the pilot, Sgt (Pilot) Charles I. SCOTT, was killed in the head on crash.

    Note: date listed for loss of P8583 is incorrect but other details are correct.

    Regards
    Ross

    Following on from a post from Henk in the archive.


    http://www.rafcommands.com/archive/09724.php


    F1180 confirms that Sgt J E Ratigan RCAF was killed when Tiger Moth T7605 crashed into the
    reservoir.


    The accident card confirms that the aircraft sank and the pilot was seen swimming but later recovered a found to have drowned.


    Both engine and airframe initially recorded as Cat E but this was later altered to Cat B for the airframe.


    So it looks like the aircraft was salvaged and returned to service.


    Regards
    Ross
