The plane was taken, quite blazenly and under fire from UN troops (with very poor aim) from Elizabethville and flown to Ndola where they left it. Makes for a funny story... one of many that George has recounted in his memoirs.
Thanks. Do you have détails as would love to get à copy of his mémoires.*
