I have just got off the phone from talking with Theresa. There is no good news at all. The operation to recover whatever can be recovered continues to be hampered by atrocious weather in the gulf. It is accepted that there is no hope now of recovering survivors from the crash. There has been a further body recovered, with 2 still not accounted for. There is no positive ID yet on either of the bodies.

Guys, please post very sensitively from this point forward (not that you haven't, or wouldn't, of course). Theresa has a link now to the thread and will be reading your messages of sympathy and your recollections of Tony. A fine aviator, a great character, and one that I am proud to call a friend. He will be sorely missed.

RIP Anthony Arfur
