Missing Aircrew,...

FP says: "...I wouldn't presume to speak for David but I've never had the feeling he was in it for money..."

Well, you are right there, not that I'd turn down a few more sheckels at my time of life.

I was crew on a helicopter which went down into trees in Borneo in November 1967.... I wondered then who would have come looking for me ?

Since then I have had a soft spot for missing aircrew and working in Papua New Guinea, as I was then, from 1987 on, was the place to be if that is your interest. It still is....heaps of missing aircraft and crews in PNG.

I blame my wife for this particular one... it was she who saw a tiny news article at Christmas 1993, about the possibility of AE being on New Britain.....
