Hello to all of you,

I am at present scanning some of my father's colour slides, taken in Aden, some at RAF Khormaksar, when he was stationed there as a WO in air traffic. 1962-1965. One slide that has recently been digitalised is a ramp scene at Khormaksar (with the famous 'barren rocks of Aden' in the background. A Britannia stands there, awaiting its next slip crew, but next to it is the Canberra XM267, the feature of your recent correspondence on its fatal ending.
Thought you might like to know! I can email on a jpeg of it. I don't know if there are any other images of XM267 in happier times.
Kind regards, Roger Carvell, Hitchin, UK.

I too witnessed the canberra crash at Akrotiri in 1970 and it still keeps coming back to me.
I had also met Kim briefly not long before the crash.
Can confirm that the aircraft was attempting an overshoot, had initiated a climb, then rolled to port and dropped into the bank on the left of the runway.
If you read this Mark, please accept my sincere condolences.
