Good remembering our fallen colleagues and their pax. I guess some recent posts have been removed, this being the last page, page 23 of 24! Ah well, not many old timers are around anymore and most don't bother with Pprune anymore. It sucks but signs of the times!

Agreed. Pprune has gone down the toilet.

Good of you guys to remember that ill fated flight. RIP to all who perished.

Last night I realised that this year will be the 40th anniversary. Finding this thread has helped fill gaps in my memory and knowledge of the crash. It has stirred up some strange feelings. A time for reflection. Thankyou to all those who have provided information. I was supposed to be on that flight.

It's all so very long ago, so I suppose I'm not surprised that the 40th anniversary has gone unnoticed. My condolences to all those whose lives were directly affected.

I used to stay in the vicinity in the 70s and dragged my girlfriend (wife now) in the evening just to sit around there. I do not know any of the victims but there was one lady who has "contacted and communicated" with me on numerous times all these years. I considered her as my Angel of Whip. I once "begged" to see her face. She did showed up in a full black and white portrait in my house's incense's table. Last week I skipped the annual visitation........
