AN aviation enthusiast is trying to trace the last resting place of a North Yorkshire air stewardess who was killed in a plane crash in 1988.

On February 27 that year, a Boeing 727 operated by Talia Airways, a Turkish charter airline, flying from Istanbul touched the summit of a mountain on its approach to Ercan airport on Cyprus.

It crashed into the mountainside moments later, killing all 15 crew and passengers on board.

Oz Orman, who lives in London, has traced the crash site where the wreckage is still strewn about, as his video on YouTube shows.

Among the victims was stewardess Andrea Pegg, who Mr Orman’s research shows was born in the Catterick/Richmond area on June 4, 1964, making her 33 when she died.

“I would like to put a picture to the name as I have with the other stewardess, Sharon Simcock, of Lytham St Annes,” says Mr Orman. “I have been through the usual channels of trying to locate her grave, but my search has proved fruitless.”

Are there any members of Andrea’s family who can point Mr Orman in the right direction. Either email Memories, or go to him direct on
