It's hard to believe so many years have already passed but neither crew are forgotten.

Rest easy guys.

Remember this like yesterday. I was part of the RAF Regt team that flew to the crash site on a US Chinook, we couldn't do a lot, but I like to think we did all we could.

We were just talking about this yesterday at work, I didn't realise the date, 17 years since I stepped off that Yank Chinook to a scene I'll never forget. RiP.

Thinking of the lads and how lucky we've been to have these years that they didn't get.
