A Year in the Life of 41 (Fighter) Squadron

Dedicated to the memory of Flight Lieutenant Greg Noble.

On January 23rd 1996 Jaguar GR.1B XX733/ER crashed on take-off from RAF Coltishall. The Board of Inquiry determined that the accident happened because the pilot (Flt Lt Greg Noble) forgot to engage afterburners at the start of the take-off run. As a result the aircraft’s undercarriage struck the top of the raised net barrier, causing the aircraft to crash and catch fire, killing the pilot.
