Anyone remember a Britannia diverting into Gan in 1969 after the tail caught fire on a flight from Singapore to Masirah.
Not sure of the month.
Hello Len,,I was on Gan all of 69,but dont remember the Brittania,,but then one tends to forget half of what went on,,thats what the site is for,and I am sure if someone comes on and brings a little more light on the subject I am sure to know about it...Larry[grsf69]
I was on that acft, quite hairy, but enjoyed the couple of days in Gan.
I would be interested to hear a bit more about this
incident please ? Was it a British Eagle or RAF aircraft involved ?? Hapy for you to email direct if you wish
Regards Geoff Gan 61/62 circuit control section
In a similar vain I joined up in 1969,does anyone remember the Phantom losing its canopy taking off in 72 think they parked it up under cover in the MT yard till a team could be flown out to repair.
I remember a C130 coming in minus an engine in '72. Can't remember if it was RAF or USAF
