RAF crew finally laid to rest 70 years later

(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Eight British Royal Air Force (RAF) men, who died on a mission during World War II were finally laid to rest on Thursday (October 18), 67 years after they died. The remains of the crew of the Royal Air Force Liberator aircraft were buried with full military honours, in the presence of family members in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. All eight men were killed instantly when their aircraft Liberator KL654 crashed into a ravine in Malaysia on August 23, 1945, during a mission to drop supplies. Local people first sighted the crash site in 1991 in the deep jungle of Kuala Pilah, about 65 miles south of Kuala Lumpur. But the identity of the aircraft was not confirmed until January 2007 when the serial number of the engine was recovered. The search for Liberator KL654 aircraft ended in August 2009. It took three years to finalise the funeral arrangements in Malaysia.
