What might you have on these 2-I have read all the stories about Baldwin disappearing into cloud but have nothing on King. Incidentally, RAF records have all 4 as still being missing
For Baldwin not much to add, became separated on weather recon flight and didn't return; it was a day of poor weather with no UN or known communist AF aerial claims.

The cause for King is given as the same, unknown became separated in bad weather, and again it was apparently a bad weather day with no aerial claims by either side.
