    I was flying it when it crashed in the Danish Sector of the Green line. I suffered a crush fracture of T12 (Spine), and subsequently did not fly again for 6 months. I was lifting jerry cans of water from the lower pad of the landing site when it happened. Tony Davies
    Tony Remember it well.It was a saturday morning.Do you remember myself and major b coming out to you.When I saw how far the aircraft had fallen down the hill I thought you were gone.Luckily not.Points to note not a good idea to have a smoke when the fuel tank is split. Dave G
    Tony, It was raining like hell and the r/t silence was deafening. You and I flew into the same site to lay the ghost about a year later. Deni D
