HC Deb 02 June 1960 vol 624 cc158-9W
Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he will make a statement on the death of Squadron Leader Christopher Walker, a serving Royal Air Force officer, while on official duty in the United States of America.

Mr. W. J. Taylor

Squadron Leader Walker lost his life in an aircraft accident in the United States on 8th July, 1958, while he was serving with the United States Air Force. The evidence of eye witnesses and subsequent technical examination showed that the aircraft disintegrated in the air. An exhaustive inquiry failed to establish the precise cause of the accident.
