Seriously, having now spoken to the wife of a dead QF flight engineer, I am more surprised that more hasn't been done to shield these people from electromagnetic radiation. The poor woman is convinced that her husband was a slow victim of radiation in the cockpit. Of the 13 flight engineers that died at QF over a period of six years (one had been retired for six months, another for a year), ALL had tumours develop in the front lobes of their brain, suggesting that the electromagnetic radiation came from directly in front and/or above*. *Note: secondary information gathered from the wife. I know where *not* to carry my mobile phone.... Russ.
