Ambassador in RAF Hercules crash (Daily Telegraph 25 May 06)
A Special Forces RAF Hercules carrying the new British ambassador in Afghanistan crashed yesterday while landing at a "primitive, wild west" airstrip, defence sources said.

The number one engine of the Hercules C130K caught fire as it came in to land. The pilot touched down safely and ordered the 28 civilians and nine RAF crew on board to evacuate the aircraft.
D'oh!

Reports suggest it may have hit an old landmine or the tyre had blown. Now thats what you call a blow-out!!!

Yer right, I'll wait for the pilot to tell me.

Bit of Black Nasty will sort that out.

Good to hear no one killed or injured , which is the most important thing , and well done to the Driver who must have been under considerable pressure.
