Interesting comments especially yours I was on the same detachment on 3sqdn. Kim slept in the same room as myself. I was planning to go on this flight. It crashed across from the Air Traffic building into an area which was not easily acessable barbed wire etc. We lost 6 members of 3 sqdn in a short period 3 in the Canberrs crash and 3 in 2 different motor accidents.
XM267 the aircraft in question was my aircraft for the first 2 weeks as an Airframe man. The previous night it ended up on another pan. Not a nice accident to watch as the cockpit area was complete after the crasg but was consumed by the post crash wire. The boss had warned the young guns about flying too close and getting Jet wash over the flight controls, sadly this happened. I left the RAF in 1972 and since been employed by various manufacturers(Fokker and Boeing)and different Dutch airlines in an Engineering capacity.
