It is with great sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm the death of Flight Lieutenant Alan Scott, of 33 Squadron Royal Air Force,who died in Afghanistan on Sunday 11 October 2015 following a helicopter crash in Kabul. officers He was a member of the Puma helicopter force based at RAF Benson in Oxfordshire.

Flight Lieutenant Alan Scott, from London, was 32. He studied at Loughborough University before enlisting in the RAF in May 2006 as a pilot. Alan graduated initial officer training and subsequently served at RAF Church Fenton and RAF Shawbury before being posted to RAF Benson in December 2009.

After graduation from the Operational Conversion Flight at RAF Benson, Alan was posted to the operational flights of 33 Squadron. A combat ready Puma pilot, Alan was undertaking his first operational tour with the Puma before he progressed to qualification as a tactics instructor. A loving husband, Alan’s calm and reserved nature will be greatly missed by his colleagues, friends and family.

His family paid the following tribute:

“There are no words and no justice. Yesterday my wonderful, beloved husband Alan Scott was killed in a helicopter crash in Kabul. My heart is broken at the fact that such a vivacious, young and amazing person can be taken so cruelly and suddenly. Nothing I can say here – or anywhere else – could ever do justice to the thoroughly excellent man I’m proud to call my husband. Rest in peace, my love. Manylots, every day.”
