    Yep - we are below 3000 officially!


    2997 records (2.45%) are still "Unaccounted".

    In case you are wondering what other milestones are out there

    Aviation Deaths (i.e a record associatd with a serial number) are just 96 short of 100,000
    (this may be a bit of a distraction, but many aircscrew related accidents are not listed as 'aviation'.. so real figure involving aircraft maybe 100,000+)

    None Aviation related deaths are 467 records short of 20,000

    We are 563 records short of 120,000 accounted for records...

    Both the crew members initially survived the crash. the Gunner ensured Joseph was hanging on to the tail of the aircraft and swam to shore to get help. when the rescue boat came around, Joseph had drowned by then.

    I am not sure why he is listed as American Citizen. He wouldnt be commissioned in the RIAF as an American citizen.
