Re: 10.1.31Wapiti IIA J9380, 39 Sqn, Risalpur Crash 2 Killed
There was a similar occurrence many years later!!
This from my now failing memory – but I think it was reported in “Air Clues”.
There was an Andover (don’t know whether it was from one of the Andover Sqns, or TQF?). It was en route somewhere in the Kenya/Ethiopia/Somalia area. FL ???
It was attacked by one of these enormous eagles. I say ‘attacked’ because if I remember correctly it was reported as having struck the Andover windscreen talons first – which is the usual ‘attack mode’ of these beasts.
I don’t think the windscreen was broken, but it might have been cracked?
Be interesting if somebody finds the details of this alleged aerial encounter!!!
Meteorology is a science; good meteorology is an art!
We might not know - but we might know who does!
