On March 17th 2018 the following comment from Carole Bell-Court (nee Alexander) was posted to the blog.
I am also a survivor of this air crash. Carole Alexander was my name then and I was 16 and lost both my parents.
This is the first time since leaving the hospital in Ljubljana in 1966 that I have ever “talked to” someone else who survived the crash.
Since then I have had several fairly lengthy email conversations with Carole and she has provided a somewhat harrowing account of her experience. Unlike me, but like my mother, she was conscious throughout and experienced the full horror of the crash. I have always thought that I was lucky in that I was, physically, on the mend before I regained consciousness.
The text that is published on the site can be found by following the link:
It is an almost word-for-word account of what Carole sent to me. I have only edited it a little to fit on pages better.
