Response to RAF aircraft crew size requirements

Hi John,

I'm not aware of any "official" size. However I recently met an RAAF vet, Mr. Alan Flemming. He moved to the US after the war. He trained "down under" as a fighter pilot. But when posted to the UK he could not fit into the cockpit of a Spit, so was made a Lanc pilot. He was (and is) 6'4". I am due to get together with him again soon and I'll see if I can get any further "size" information. Hope this helps.

Paul O.
