HC Deb 11 December 1928 vol 223 c1914

asked the Secretary of State for Air the number of deaths in the Royal Air Force due to accidents whilst flying during the years 1927 and 1928, respectively?

The SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Sir Samuel Hoare)

The number of deaths clue to flying accidents in the Royal Air Force in 1927 was 57; in 1928, 73. These figures include casualties to Reserve, Special Reserve, and Auxiliary Air Force personnel under training, and to Navy and Army personnel attached to the Royal Air Force. I may add that some fluctuation from year to year is inevitable; in 1926, for example, the corresponding figure was 85.
