THE LOSS OF DAKOTA A65-106  

Taken not long after the accident, this photo clearly shows the inflated dinghy that Bill Miles and Tony Leiper used to shelter the injured crew.

Miles and Leiper tried several times to gain access to what remained of the fiercely burning forward cockpit.  Unfortunately they were not able to assist the two pilots, FLGOFF Bill Bowden and Flight Sergeant (FSGT) Peter Davis, both of whom had died on impact.
