Here we have some photos taken by the late Pete Lucas. Pete was part of the team sent to recover and repair G-AWYS after she over-ran the end of the runway in Corfu. The photos came in from Pete's family via Bob Cooper.

G-AWYS was successfully recovered, flown back to Gatwick and returned to service after a complete overhaul.
