HC Deb 10 May 1935 vol 301 c1264W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air, how many flying accidents occured in Great Britain during the year 1934 in which fire was the cause of the accident; the number of cases in which fire followed an accident; and the total number of accidents for the year?


In no case, during the year 1934, was any flying accident caused by an outbreak of fire. In nine cases fire broke out subsequent to the accident. The total number of accidents to civil aircraft of all classes was 96. It should be added that this figure relates to cases of structural damage and not to personal injury.
