The RAF has paid tribute to a Tornado pilot killed in a crash off the coast of Scotland earlier this week.
Wing Commander Jonathon Moreton described Flight Lieutenant Hywel Poole as a "capable and confident pilot" with an "infectious personality".
Displaying a natural talent for flying the Tornado, he quickly established himself on the squadron as a very capable and confident pilot, which, coupled with his keen sense of humour and engaging character, made him a very popular student on the squadron.
Outside the squadron, he dedicated much of his personal time to others; he mentored other station personnel who aspired to gain a commission and would always volunteer to raise money for station charities, including Help for Heroes.
An infectious personality, always cheerful, friendly and immensely likeable, Hywel will be greatly missed by all.
