1. When you quote the Lighthouse Keeper which one do you mean? The Keeper at the Lighthouse stated the visibility was "15 to 20 metres at most" whilst the Keeper returning from Campbeltown estimated the visibility as "10 metres or less" as he drove over the Hill. Both Keepers were Met Observers who routinely took Met Observations as part of their duties.

2. Seven other witnesses gave evidence on oath as to the weather conditions at the time of the crash. In this context it is worth remembering that the Yachtsman was not aware of the crash until some hours later.

3; The first recorded Military aircraft crash on the Mull was an AW Whitley in 1941. Since that time there have been 19 further accidents and over 120 lives have been lost.
