Operation Time-line - The Hunt For Dakota KN630

7pm Thursday 26th October

RAF Dakota KN630 went down in the high jungle of Malaya in 1950 at the height of operations during the Malayan “Emergency”.   How were Dakotas utilised during the period? What was it doing there? How did it crash and where?  Who was on board? What came next?  Why was it “lost”?  What led up to the search and what was the outcome? 

Get the answers with this first-hand account, including film of how and why 100 soldiers, 50 policemen and others launched into the high jungle of Malaysia 58 years later.

Join Paul Edwards in the Museum to find out more. There will be the opportunity to buy a glass of wine or soft drink beforehand.
