This a/c was en route from UK to Singapore in june 1969. Crash landed in a sandstorm near Nukaib Iraq. Ran out of fuel, did a wheels up. No casualties.
Crew p2 Fitzakerly and Traverse. Fitz later killed in Dakota. I'am still here.
I understand the a/c was recovered by a Raf regiment unit and transported by vehicles to Raf Habbaniya after the wings removed. Fitz and I rescued by arabs and thats another story!
So happy to hear the old birdeventually made it home and still airworthy?
regards
