Although not Army related, I wanted to express my deepest condolences to the family of Lt Cdr Jack London RN who sadly died yesterday when his Sea Harrier went in on take-off from RAF Wittering. Jack had recently been awarded the Queens Commendation for Bravery in the Air (QCBA) for piloting his Harrier and returning to his ship when the canopy exploded in-flight. His bravery had recently been featured in a BBC documentary where he was interviewed and spoke eloquently of his love of flying and his desire to remain a pilot rather than climb the promotion ladder. Jack joined the FAA, initially as a rotary-wing pilot and later became a QHI. He transferred to the Sea Harrier where he became one of the Navy's senior Harrier pilots and instructors. Jack is survived by his wife and son.
