    Death Anniversary Thread

    Watched a documentary about it a few years ago, went over the original investigation and a couple of the conspiracy theories plus had an investigator review the case, he discovered that the charts that the crew were using were older than the ones the Rhodesian investigation had and didn't show the small hill that they crashed into, so at night with no radar or ground proximity warning they had no way to know that they were descending into rising ground.

    Well the first guess was way off so it's looking like the "private Pike" instead. With the death of the Queen we have lost the last head of state who was also a veteran of the war, today is historically significant no matter what your nationality or political views are. May she rest in a well deserved peace!

    The last head of state who was also a WWII veteran, the end of an era indeed.

    12. Queen Elizabeth II

    I know 2 people older than her who sailed through it but I also had a cousin who had long covid for 10 months and passed away in her sleep aged 38 so yes it's a total lottery but I remember her saying something like "it makes one awfully tired" and was wondering if that could still be the problem?

    Just a thought, she seems to have gone downhill since having COVID, could she be suffering from long COVID? that would explain the lack of energy, I know a few people who are half her age or less and have a hard time with it, so at 96 it would be a bigger deal.

    Death Anniversary Thread

    OOO would probably have heard more inside information about it, but even the photo finish on the Ford page the no.2 car is ahead (and no finish line), is the myth to cover that Ford in Miles own words fucked him and pass the blame on to the French? Chris Amon has also said that they crossed the line first. With the tragic death of Miles 2 months later has the 8 meters become a "fact", has any other race ever been decided by where you start compared to the car in front? Could you imagine someone from the 3rd or 4th row winning because they were 30 feet behind the leader? Like I said OOO has probably spoken to some of those involved and could give us better insight.

    If a car does more laps yes but if like that race they are on the same lap whichever crosses the line first wins no matter where on the grid they started, races are measured from the start line to the finish line (normally the same but not always) not grid position.

    AHH the great myth of the 66 Le Mans, Amon and McLaren won because Amon crossed the line in front of Miles not because of how far they had driven. Amon car no.2, Miles behind in car no.1.

    Well, I did know one who retired from the army in the mid 80s as a Company Sargent Major, but he died a couple of years ago, so more of the decent shout as there are bound to be others.

    QEII? On a more serious note how about a spotty 15 year old who joined the Home Guard in August/September 1944?
