If you recognise any of the missing Engineers above, please drop me a line BCalatribute@outlook.com so I can add them in
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.
