It was 6 June 1990. I was flying next to him on the approach having provided the visual inspection (and imparting the good news that the gear hadn't shifted - emergency gear selector connected 180 degrees out, if I recall correctly).

After it skidded gracefully to a halt with the odd spark and flash from the underside, the canopy went up pretty smartly and they went over the side. That was definitely the fastest any of us had ever seen BigBits move!
