F/O Laurie Woods AM DFC Ld’H RAAF

It is with enormous sadness that we report the passing of F/O Laurie Woods AM DFC Ld’H RAAF, who died on the 22 March.

This hero flew 31 Ops &, despite not being a pilot, managed to land a Lanc safely, after his pilot was injured. One of only 2 in WW2 to achieve such a feat.

Hello,

Read Laurie Woods' own account of his "Lucky Last Trip". Take a look at the rest of his site, before it disappears, forever?

Vale, Laurie.

Col.
