From the daily wires:
A test flight of a GR.4 Tornado went tragically awry yesterday when the back-seat navigator was somehow dislodged from his seat and fell through the canopy with the aircraft in an inverted roll. Read the full bizarre story here.
Meanwhile, I have received a report from Flight International’s internal data team that an Azerbaijani-owned Ilyushin Il-76 was fired on while landing yesterday at the Mogadishu airport. I am still hunting for a news report of this inident. If confirmed, this incident follows two previous attacks in March on Il-76 transports arriving in Mogadishu.
