This story seems to have been going on for quite a while now. It started three years ago, to the day, in fact. On February 9th, 2014, RAF Voyager ZZ333 was en route from RAF Brize Norton to Camp Bastion Airfield in Afghanistan containing a flight crew of 9 and 189 passengers. Aside from a little turbulence, the flight was going well. That is until the plane suddenly pitched down, and plunged 4,440ft in altitude.
Between then and now, there’s been a lot of investigating going on. The pilot has now been publicly identified as Flt Lt. Andrew Townshend. He’s facing a court martial hearing, that’s still going on. And it seems he was not entirely honest with his initial reports. When he initially put down to a a technical fault was apparently caused by trying out long exposures with his DSLR due to being bored.
