Gannet AEW 3 Harness restraint issues[edit]

Dear friends, I had placed a short piece under Gannet AEW 3 'Harness restraint issues' a while back which was in fact my Green Endorsement following the ditching of a Fairey Gannet AEW 3. The story is verifiable and appears in a copy of the Naval Magazine Flight Deck. It was in Wkipedia for quite some time and in fact had benefitted from a few small improvements such as changing the abbreviation of Lt to the full Lieutenant, this sort of thing. So it had been read and 'approved' if that is the correct word. Then for some reason it has been removed and I have no idea why or by whom. It preceded the extract from Cockpit issue 65, fourth quarter 1973 which currently sits there. The story is, to my knowledge, unique in aviation history in that it was a night-time ditching from HMS Ark Royal in a military aircraft with no harness restraint and in what is known as the Bermuda Triangle. Would this not be of interest? I would appreciate your thoughts please. Thanks. Keith Jones — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.198.22.229 (talk) 14:35, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
