Jolly 22 Five years

Post by john@runway11 » Sat Jan 12, 2019 10:29 pm

It's been Five years Monday since the tragic crash of Jolly 22 near Cley in Norfolk.
I remember that cold January night and the 4 Crew that died, who I had met and knew.
The work they do is outstanding, the lives they have saved is incredible.
Staff Sgt Afton Ponce, Capt Christopher Stover, Technical Sgt Dale Matthews and Capt Sean Ruane you will always be remembered.
Blue Skies!
