Killed in Action during an Operational sortie over Southern Angola during Operation Hooper when his Mirage F1AZ, Serial No.245 was shot down by a Soviet SA-13 Gopher Surface-to-Air Missile at Cuatir near Menongue. The aircraft was seen to crash in flames and disintegrate on impact with the ground. He has no known grave but a Memorial Grave Headstone has been erected in the Military Plot of the Thaba Tshwane (Voortrekkerhoogte) New Military Cemetery in his memory. He was 31. A Special Forces team covering the area where the Mirage wreckage was located reported a large number of FAPLA and Cuban Air Force intelligence personnel picking through the wreckage and called in an artillery barrage onto the wreckage. The MRL Rocket-launcher Troop under Pierre Franken hit the spot with a half-ripple of 127mm High Explosive Fragmentation Rockets and two FAPLA trucks were required to collect the more than 143 Cuban and FAPLA bodies that were killed by this rocket barrage.
