Lochailort Shackelton Crash – 50 years on

A Memorial service was held on 21st Dec 2017 at Lochailort to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 206 Sqn Shackelton Crash in 1967.  It was organised by John Channon from the 206 Sqn Association.

QUOTE from JOHN CHANNON ………..It was a most moving service conducted with respect and dignity by the padre and all of us were in our different ways greatly affected by it. After a further 15 minutes of reflection, we made our way downwards as the light began to dim and the weather started to draw in. We arrived back at the trailhead where some of the party had to depart because of flights and trains. Most of us retired to the Lochailort Inn for a well-earned coffee and to say our goodbyes before dispersal.
