CALGARY — After vanishing more than 70 years ago during a Second World War training exercise, the remains of four missing airmen have been recovered and identified in British Columbia.
Sgt. William Baird, with the Royal Canadian Air Force, along with Pilot Officer Charles George Fox, Pilot Officer Anthony William Lawrence, and Sgt. Robert Ernest Luckock from the Royal Air Force, were conducting a navigation training mission aboard the Avro Anson L7056 aircraft but failed to return.
The aircraft left Patricia Bay, B.C., on Oct. 30, 1942 and was not discovered during a subsequent search.
