Hello, Mini'Q''
I met your mum briefly outside the Mosset whilst having a smoke. I'm the one wearing the "gopping" orange shirt with Q and Gez in the Omani Sgts mess.
Take care

I'll certainly be raising a glass, and I dare say the boys will be having a drink or two at the bar of the Orange Park Holiday Inn in the sky. RIP lads.

To Tappers Dad and to all the families and friends of all those that were lost, Jane and I will be thinking of you all this Christmas time. It will be painful beyond belief for you I know, but I hope you have been able to take some comfort in the many wonderful words that have been written on this forum about your loved ones. They were all very special people.

We will never forget them, have no fear of that. Their memories live on in our hearts, just as they do in yours, and we all share your sadness, especially at this time.

I too have no doubts that 'the boys' are all watching down on us from above at some great big bar in the sky, singing songs, telling jokes and doing what aircrew do best....having a bloody good laugh!.

We're all thinking about you guys, and the pain still hurts like hell.
God Bless

Terry & Jane

They say the bad days come in threes.

I was working at the CAOC in Al Udeid that fateful morning. A Dutch F16 had crashed with the loss of the pilot the day before and there was a blue on blue event between the A10's and Canadian ground troops the day after.

I had the A10's on scene at the Nimrod site very quickly after reports of the explosion. There was nothing we could do. It all happened very quickly.

My sincere condolences to all the families.

Thoughts

As I prepare to look after the families of one of our returning crews, I can't help but think of friends, comrades, brothers and sisters in arms who are missing their loved ones at this time of the year.
I have a bottle of fine port which I will raise to you all sleep well friends.

I've pretty much stayed out of this thread other than passing on my condolences however, after watching BBC news this morning I felt compelled to pass on my heart felt sorrow for the families attending the service today.

I had tears in my eyes whilst getting dressed this morning and I seem unable to escape the mood.

My thoughts are with everyone at RAF Kinloss today.

memories

i too wish to pass on my love and thoughts to the families today. it brought back alot of memories for the memorial service that we had for the boys who were killed when the C-130 hercules was shot down in iraq jan 05. it was a beautiful service lacking in one thing only....ten fine men. tomorrow, it's two years to the day i lost bob and i feel like my heart has been ripped from me as much now as i did that day. i am sad to say i know how you feel, thankfully we are one of few, albeit growing number. we must always stick together. let us remember them and never never forget, the people they were, the professionals they strived to be and the hole that they leave in our lives and that of their friends, colleaugues and community. wishing you love and light, and remember keep the faith.

Memorial service

Today's memorial service was a fitting tribute to all of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice on 02 Sep. We all now know, after the tribute from the Stn Cdr, a little bit more about each of them. Hopefully, everyone smiled at hearing something new about each one.

I forgot how much colder it is oop north though!!!

Carla, many congratulations to all of you for this award. You are an inspiration to young people faced with tragic events and your Dads would be rightly proud of you.

Chris Davies

Hi my name is Chris Davies, wife of Ady Davies Eng on 120 sqn Crew 3. I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart, everyone who has been in touch or passed messages to us since that dreadful day the 2nd Sept 2006. Our lives were turned upside down and will never never be the same, but thanks to all the kind words and thoughts of support from all of you out there we are struggling through each day. My children, Hayley, Carla Suzanne and Glynn have been a tour of strength to me and I know that without them I would not be able to continue. I am so proud of them words cannot say enough and so would Ady be - they were his life. For all 18 children so sadly affected by this tragedy this Sunday Mail Readers award has been fantastic - for them to have this recognition from the outside world for what they are going through is wonderful. To my wonderful husband - god bless my love till we meet again. xx
